Procedures for Troubleshooting FRS Event 13508
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727056.aspx#EMAA

Run the below commands and check for any errors
Dcdiag /q, Netdiag /q
Check if the Time sync is in place
Firstly check if below Registry is in place on the server that shows errors

In my case these changes didn't resolve the problem:
1. Stop FRS.
2. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
3. Locate and click the following key in the registry:
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters
4. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
   Value name: Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore
   Data type: REG_DWORD
   Radix: Hexadecimal
   Value data: 1 (Default 0)
5. Locate and click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters\Backup/Restore/Process at Startup
6. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
   Value name: BurFlags
   Data type: REG_DWORD
   Radix: Hexadecimal
   Value data: D2
7. Quit Registry Editor.
8. Start FRS service


   net time \\ComputerName_Of_Authoritative_Time_Server /set /y
   net stop ntfrs
   net start ntfrs

The steps I'm referring too appear to be idetical to the steps Rancy quoted. It appears someone copied them to the Microsoft sire (or vise versa) a while back.

There are multiple reasons for event id 13508 to occur it could be due network latency issue.Ad sites and services are not set corectly,replication issue,dns misconfig,required port not open for AD replication,secure channel broken,etc.

I would recommend to first check the health of dc by running dcdiag /q and repadmin /replsum and post the log if error is reported along with ipconfig /all details of DC's.

I would suggest contact network/security team to verify whether all the related AD ports being configured and allowed on the firewall for communication. Portquery is free tool from the MS which can be downloaded and installed to verify the necessary ports are opened or not.
 
Also, disable local windows firewall service, by default it is enabled in vista/windows 2008 and above. Check the network connectivity and latency.

If manual connection are created in AD sites and service then remove the same and run repadmin /kcc to regerate the topology:

first check that you have proper Connection objects has been created in Sites and Services

Browse \\WorkingDC.domain.local copy sysvol & netlogon and keep backup on ProblemDC &  WorkingDC (If can not browse check network connectivity/Port and don't proceed further)

Go to WorkingDC  stop NTFRS service open regedit and go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup" change the burflag value to D4 Start NTFRS(File Replication service) service and wait for File Replication event ID 13516 now Go to ProblemDC  stop NTFRS service open regedit go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters\Backup/Restore\Process at <samp>Startup" change the burflag value to D2 -> Start NTFRS(File Replication service) service and wait for File Replication event ID 13516 now

Check Now your sysvol and netlogon shares are available

Above is called Authoritive(D4) and non-Authoritive Restore (D2)
