2008 R2 DC replication w/ 2003 DC error

I have a win2k8 R2 DC that only seems to replicate with other 2008 R2 DC's. It will not replicate with my win 2003 DC's, which is the root domain.

any ideas? dcdiag errors:

Sorry my previous link is for RODC, so disregard unless you're running a read only DC.

Are other windows server 2008 DC's replicating fine with windows server 2003 DC's?  Is this problem isolated to this one particular win2k8 DC?

Was this server promoted with the same name as another DC that was previously demoted?  On different hardware entirely?

The win2k8 DC is not RODC - It was not a previous name before and it is replicating with the other 2k8DC's just fine.

Run DCDiag /test:DNS from the command prompt and test DNS. DNS is used as a pointer to replication partners. If one partner doesn't have the DNS records of the other, then they can't replicate.
