AD domain controllers not replicating after a restore

A week ago we had a full failure of our Exchange 2010 server. Unfortunately it is also a DC, but I've read that I cannot remove it from the DC role once exchange is installed. I've never like that configuration, but it has always worked so I don't fret too much. We had to do a full restore of exchange converted the physical back to VHD using our software, and it took some doing and everything has been working fine for a week now.

However today I noticed that user change made on our primary DC was not propagating to the mail server.  I ran the following 2 commands and there are clearly some AD database corruptions causing replication to fail. How can I correct this?

Repadmin /showrepl

Repadmin: running command /showrepl against full DC localhost

I'll attach the DCDIAG output since it is fairly long, but errors in it too.

What is really odd is that the first command is showing a last successful on 9/6, but my restore was back on 8/24 so it has been working.

I ran esentutl to checksum, defrag, and repair. None of which worked. Looks like this is going to be escalated to MS.
