DFS replication not working 2008r2 and 2012 server

Title pretty much says it all..  New 2012 server added it as a server in the mesh topology for a particular dfs root and pointed it to local share etc.  Files started populating.  Checked back in 2 days and its only 1.17 gb and the share is well over 7gb.  Eventvwr has a few hiccups where it cant connect to one of the servers in the roots (connected via vpn over comcast links) that time out is not long and it resumes fine.
First 2012 server in this domain.
Ran a config report on 2012 server but it said it was pretty much healthy...

As you mentioned, it seems to have self-healed as they both have similar file size now, at least within a hundred mb and new files/folders appear almost instantly..

Good to know that, if you are receiving 5004 Event ID then in mose scenarios DFSR is fine.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
