JRNL_WRAP_ERROR on Windows 2003 server, added 2012 DC successfully, but can't replicate

Up until last week, I had a single 2003 DC in a remote office. I just added a 2012 DC, but I noticed it's not fully replicating with FRS, most likely due to a JRNL_WRAP_ERROR on the 03 server, which has apparently been happening since 2012. I followed the instructions a few times to do the registry edit on "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore", but that didn't seem to help. I've read up on the burflags key, but I haven't tried it yet. Assuming burflags is my next step, how should I proceed? Since the 2012 DC process succeeded, but yet isn't a fully operational DC, I wasn't sure if I should proceed with a nonauthoritative restore, or if I'd risk screwing up something. Thanks.

Error message on 2003 server -
The File Replication Service has detected that the replica set "DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)" is in JRNL_WRAP_ERROR.

Error on 2012 server for reference -
