I have a Server 2012r2 active directory domain with two DCs. I recently added a GPO and started having sporadic issues with the settings being applied to computers. I noticed the folder containing the policies on one DC had not replicated to the other DC. Event viewer is showing the below error.
I have found many suggestions as to how to fix this but would like some clarification as to how to proceed. The below suggestion to "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" seems easy enough but I have found blogs stating that this could potentially make the issue worse. I am also finding the solution of performing a non-authoritative restore by changing the burflag key to D2 on the DC having the error message. Will this sync from the other DC and if so does this overwrite what is on the failed DC? I ask because the failed DC is the one containing the new policy.
Any help will be appreciated.
Log Name: File Replication Service

Event ID: 13568
Task Category: None
The File Replication Service has detected that the replica set "DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)" is in JRNL_WRAP_ERROR.
Replica set name is : "DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)"
Replica root path is : "c:\windows\sysvol\domain"
Replica root volume is : "\\.\C:"
A Replica set hits JRNL_WRAP_ERROR when the record that it is trying to read from the NTFS USN journal is not found. This can occur because of one of the following reasons.
 Volume "\\.\C:" has been formatted.
 The NTFS USN journal on volume "\\.\C:" has been deleted.
 The NTFS USN journal on volume "\\.\C:" has been truncated. Chkdsk can truncate the journal if it finds corrupt entries at the end of the journal.
 File Replication Service was not running on this computer for a long time.
 File Replication Service could not keep up with the rate of Disk IO activity on "\\.\C:".
Setting the "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" registry parameter to 1 will cause the following recovery steps to be taken to automatically recover from this error state.
 At the first poll, which will occur in 5 minutes, this computer will be deleted from the replica set. If you do not want to wait 5 minutes, then run "net stop ntfrs" followed by "net start ntfrs" to restart the File Replication Service.
 At the poll following the deletion this computer will be re-added to the replica set. The re-addition will trigger a full tree sync for the replica set.
WARNING: During the recovery process data in the replica tree may be unavailable. You should reset the registry parameter described above to 0 to prevent automatic recovery from making the data unexpectedly unavailable if this error condition occurs again.
To change this registry parameter, run regedit.
Click on Start, Run and type regedit.
Click down the key path:
Double click on the value name
"Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore"
and update the value.
If the value name is not present you may add it with the New->DWORD Value function under the Edit Menu item. Type the value name exactly as shown above.
