There is 13509 on our main DC and 13508 on the backup DC.  When I used net share on both, backup dc shows netlogon and sysvol, but not on the main dc.

Is this normal?  Is there a step to correct this?  thx

here is what I have so far after following the steps, I have even 13566 but did not get a  13516, according to the steps, there is something else in FRS, not sure what direction I should take.  Thx

To complete an authoritative restore, stop the FRS service, configure the BurFlags registry key, and then restart the FRS service. To do so:

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type cmd and then press ENTER.
In the Command box, type net stop ntfrs.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit and then press ENTER.
Locate the following subkey in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup
In the right pane, double click BurFlags.
In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, type D4 and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor, and then switch to the Command box.
In the Command box, type net start ntfrs.
Quit the Command box.
When the FRS service is restarted, the following actions occur:

The value for the BurFlags registry key is set back to 0.
An event 13566 is logged to signal that an authoritative restore is started.
Files in the reinitialized FRS replicated directories remain unchanged and become authoritative on direct replication. Additionally, the files become indirect replication partners through transitive replication.
The FRS database is rebuilt based on current file inventory.
When the process is complete, an event 13516 is logged to signal that FRS is operational. If the event is not logged, there is a problem with the FRS configuration.

These should replicate from other directory servers, so you can try the solutions in the following KB article to see if it helps.

EDIT: I did not see your last post, so I appreciate your understanding if I repeated what you just did/said.

Do you have a firewall on either system?

You also can look at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727056.aspx#EMAA, which  uses ntfrsutl.
