FRS error on Server 2008 domain controller after SBS migration

I migrated a windows 2003 SBS server to full server 2008 domain controller. The sbs system is no longer online and the migration was successful. However, I am seeing the following error in the event logs on the new DC.

How can I shut off the FRS or remove the configuration so it no longer looks for replication from the old sbs system.

Windows Event Viewer error under 'Apps and Service Logs' > File Replication Service:

The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from sbs.domain.local to NEWDC for c:\windows\sysvol\domain using the DNS name sbs.domain.local. FRS will keep retrying.
 Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
 
 [1] FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name sbs.domain.local from this computer.
 [2] FRS is not running on sbs.domain.local.
 [3] The topology information in the Active Directory Domain Services for this replica has not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.
 
 This event log message will appear once per connection, After the problem is fixed you will see another event log message indicating that the connection has been established.

You need to run a metadata cleanup on Windows 2008 Server to remove the SBS server from the domain it seems to have some lingering objects.

Run dcdiag post

Or you can have removed before replication was fully done which could be the problem as well
