DCDIAG fails on DFSREvent event

I wonder if this is an issue.   Two Domain Controller in Windows 2008.   One passes DCDIAG fine.  Another one fails no DFSREvent.  

Starting test: DFSREvent
   There are warning or error events within the last 24 hours after the
   SYSVOL has been shared.  Failing SYSVOL replication problems may cause
   Group Policy problems.

Any associated events in your event logs?   Can you post repadmin /showreps (want to make sure AD replication is ok)

Thanks

repadmin seems ok.  Do not see any associated updates in Even Log.

As long as there is no DFS namespace and Replication Groups are not configured, you can ignore it. In most cases DFS Replication will take care of replication issues automatically, so ignore it. If you want to check the same, then open EventViewer and go to DFS Replication and check latest events, you might see 1206, 1104, 6102 or 5004 event IDs.

Sounds like I can safely ignore it if no DFS in place.  We don't have any DFS in place.

It seems that DFSR is used for sysvol replication.Check the DFS log if no error are reported then you can ingore the same.

Also are there any backup configured as this may occur during backup and dfs service will be stop temporarly.More see this:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/a3855776-1f2f-4d1d-b193-53f3ff653537/dcdiag-failed-test-dfsrevent?forum=winserverDS
