I have two Win2k DCs on my domain and three WinNT BDCs. The two Win2K DCs are not replicating the scripts with each other. When I check the event viewer I get this error. Event ID 13508 Source NTFRS

Description: he File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from Server1 to Server2 for c:\winnt\sysvol\domain using the DNS name Server1.domain.pri. FRS will keep retrying.
Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.

[1] FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name Server1.domain.pri from this computer.
[2] FRS is not running on Server1.domain.PRI.
[3] The topology information in the Active Directory for this replica has not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.

This event log message will appear once per connection, After the problem is fixed you will see another event log message indicating that the connection has been established.

What can I do to fix this?

FRS depends on DNS working correctly, and 13508s are usually caused by DNS
problems. I've pasted some DNS tshooting resources below:
