File replication doesn't work after promoting a server to dc

I decommissioned a server today and promoted a different one. The server Did not have any fsmo roles. The new server is 2008 and I have 3 other dc's in the domain. I keep getting a warning on the newly promoted server saying it could not communicate with another specified dc in my domain and frs will not allow the new dc to operate as a dc until this happeneds. The new dc does not have the sysvol or netlogon shares. The event log told me to check the connection between the servers. I can ping all of the servers and connect to file shares on the other servers locally, but get a no network specified error when trying to connect to a file share on a dc in another site, but I can ping it by ip and fqdn. I have been messing with this all day and have done everything I know to do

Found the problem....The MAINDC was still looking at the decommissioned server for DNS. Changed that and everything started working. Thanks for the help!
