DFSR - The content set was not found

Having trouble w/ DFSR on one server. The problem server is a Hyper-V machine running Windows Server 2012. Others are 2008 & 2003.

After the replication group is created, the good servers generate the DfsrPrivate folder and start replicating. The problem server never generates the DfsrPrivate folder (no, it's not hidden). I checked the log and it is full of these errors:

328 SRTR 969 [WARN] SERVER_EstablishSession Failed to establish a replicated folder session. connId:{72E65703-9E11-4962-BE59-53E7CFF876B0} csId:{10EE860C-35A0-4C71-B4D3-233094D0166C} Error:
 + [Error:9028(0x2344) UpstreamTransport::EstablishSession upstreamtransport.cpp:808 328 C The content set was not found]
 + [Error:9028(0x2344) OutConnection::TransportEstablishSession outconnection.cpp:510 328 C The content set was not found]
 + [Error:9028(0x2344) OutConnection::TransportEstablishSession outconnection.cpp:454 328 C The content set was not found]

Is there a way to fix the error "the content set was not found"? Or is this a red herring? Any help appreciated.

Any help out there for DFSR?  I am considering uninstalling and reinstalling DFS.  I'd like to make sure nothing remains after the uninstall.  Anyone have guidance for post uninstall cleanup of files & registry keys?

Haven't had a single response so I went ahead w/ the uninstall.  

If anyone else ever has this problem and can't find a better fix...I removed the namespace server, uninstalled DFS/DFSR, rebooted, via cmd deleted sysvol\dfsr on all volumes (this took a bit of renaming since the filenames were "too long"), reinstalled DFS/DFSR and recreated the namespaces and replication groups.  It is working for now.
