DCdiag Warning: Attribute userAccountControl

Hi,

sometimes im see this warning when im runing dcdiag which i dont really understand.
Can somebody explain it to me what that means? Can it be ignored?

DC is windows server 2008R2


Warning:  Attribute userAccountControl of DC is:

         0x82020 = ( PASSWD_NOTREQD | SERVER_TRUST_ACCOUNT | TRUSTED_FOR_DELEGATION )

         Typical setting for a DC is

         0x82000 = ( SERVER_TRUST_ACCOUNT | TRUSTED_FOR_DELEGATION )

         This may be affecting replication?

         An error event occurred.  EventID: 0x00000457

PASSWD_NOTREQD is exactly what it says, an attribute is set on the account in question so it doesn't require a password.  

There is an answer on this page that looks similar, was the computer account pre-created?
