Small Business Server with Event ID 13559

HI all,

I've recently taken on a customer that uses a SBS 2003 box that is running on ESXi. We have started testing migrating to 2011 using  a copy of the VM and we are running into issues with file replication. I can see the event id 13559 in the file replication event log and it has been happening for a hell of a long time. I believe i need to resolve this in order to move forward however am not sure of the exact approach for this particular config.
I have seen many people advise to create a file NTFRS_CMD_MOVE_ROOT in the sysvol directory however this advice comes with the caveat that i have another domain controller on the network. Since it is SBS that is not the case. Other advise to do non authoritative restore. Again i believe useless in a single domain scenario. This only leaves me with an authoritative restore. however i don't have a backup from when this was not occurring and it would be way old anyhow.

Any other suggestions?

Have solved this myself.

I cloned my VM again and tried the method to create a empty file called NTFRS_CMD_MOVE_ROOT in the sysvol folder and it seems to have fixed the situation for me. The 2011 migration continued moving after i corrected this.
