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.

Burflags -

Error message on 2003 server -

Error on 2012 server for reference -

The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from 2003 server to this 2012 server for c:\windows\sysvol\domain using the DNS name 2003server.domain.local
