Event 13540  The File Replication Service cannot replicate

NJ-EWhite used Ask the Experts™
I'm getting an Event 13540 error related to File Replication Service:

Event 13540

The File Replication Service cannot replicate c:\windows\sysvol\domain because the pathname of the customer designated staging directory:
 is not the fully qualified pathname of an existing, accessible local directory.

Does any know how I can resolve this error?

Did you make any changes in the IP confirguration on the servers? Please let us know if  c:\windows\sysvol\staging\domain is a path to an existing accessible directory on that Machine? Also Please provide the output of command "net share" via command to check where sysvol and netlogon are pointing on that particular machine.

I called dell support.

Apparently, the permissions was set correctly on the Sysvol folder.
