Error in DFS Replication in R2

I'm attempting to replicate files between 2 windows 2003 R2 servers. To note, one is 32 and the other is 64 if that matters.

The files seem to be replicating, but when I try to monitor by running a report I get an error.

Cannot access the local WMI repository.

Then on the next page it says

Cannot access the local WMI repository.
  Affected replicated folders: All replicated folders on this server.
  Description: The DFS Replication reporting mechanism cannot find the WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) namespace to retrieve certain reporting information. Error ID: 0x8004100e.  
  Last occurred: Saturday, June 12, 2010 at 11:29:40 AM (GMT-6:00)
  Suggested action: For information about troubleshooting WMI errors, see WMI help.  

I've googled all over the place, cannot get a straight answer. Anyone have any ideas?

"The WMI provider namespace cannot be found" WBEM_E_INVALID_NAMESPACE 0x8004100e Error on Citrix
When viewing the server health of a Presentation Server 4.5 server in Citrix Access Management Console the following error is reported:

"The WMI provider namespace cannot be found on server 'SERVER'. (Message: Invalid namespace Error: 0x8004100E)"

The following is also seen in the Application event log:

Source: WSH
Event ID: 1
Citrix Monitoring Script Event 2
Citrix MetaFrame Session In Down State:
WMI error retrieving session object:
Received error: 0x8004100e: Invalid namespace [WBEM_E_INVALID_NAMESPACE]

Repairing the Citrix installation does not resolve the issue.
If you receive this error you will need to recompile one or more of your Citrix .MOF files. A .MOF (Managed Object Format) file is the mechanism by which information about WMI classes is entered into the WMI Repository. It is possible that the class definitions currently in the Repository have somehow become corrupted; in that case, recompiling your .MOF files will cause those class definitions to be overwritten and replaced with the same, uncorrupted class definitions used when the operating system was originally installed.

To recompile all Citrix .MOF files enter the following commands in a command prompt:

CD "C:\Program Files\Citrix\System32\Citrix\WMI"
for %i in (*.mof, *.mfl) do Mofcomp %i

It may also be necessary to restart the Windows Management Instrumentation Driver Extensions service, which will restart the following services:

- Citrix ADF Installer Service
- Citrix Client Network
- Citrix Encryption Service
- Citrix Independent Management Architecture
- Citrix MFCOM Service
- Citrix XML Service

Sorry, none of these answers resolved the problem. Reinstall did though.

Thanks though
