NameSpace Error RPC server is unavailable

I installed a file server, setup my namespace server.  Then I deleted the namespace because it was wrong.  I changed the IP of this new DC and now I'm trying to initiate a new namespace and it keeps giving me an error for the namespace type.  "\\DOMAIN.org\networkdrives: The namespace cannot be queried.  The RPC server is unavailable".  Any ideas how to fix this?  I searched around and saw alot of items pointing to server 2003, not server 2008.

Server 2008 Standard SP2

try flushing the cache.
Open a command prompt and type:
dfsutil cache domain flush
dfsutil cache referral flush
dfsutil cache provider flush

Didn't work.  It only go to "Working: Validate input." Same error, The namespace cannot be queried.  The RPC server is unavailable.

Under my Replication tab, I have Domain System Volume and under that is blank.  Do I have to setup both servers prior to adding the Namespace?  I thought you could setup the Namespace first, then add your replication..
