Windows 2008 DFS Replication Setup Prooblem

I have a Windows 2008 R2 setup with Windows 2008 Forest and Domain level and Windows 2008 R2 File servers.  I setup a Namespace on my domian and 2 target folders on 2 different file servers.  I am trying to replicate between those and I get a wierd error that I can't track down how to fix.

"The following folder targets cannot be added as a DFS Replication members.  Click Details for more information.


Domain\Servername$: The Windows NT 4.0 account name cannot be converted to a fully qualified distinguished name on DCNAME.FQDN  The name returned with an error"

I can't see anything in the event log and everything i have tried has failed:

1.  Remove the file server and re-add to domain.
2.  Ensure File Replication service is on.
3.  Change the share name.
4.  Check share permissions.
5.  Server is resolvable both NETBIOS and DNS
6.  Share can be reached.

What else can I do or look at?

Have you tried creating a DFS Diagnostic Report?

I do not have a DFS Diagnostic Report since I can't get replication to work.  I assume the node is not available unless replication is configured on at least 2 targets.
