I have a 2003 R2 server and a 2008 server that have just been set up for replication. This domain has never had replication before, so the group, all installs, etc. were brand new. I was able to create a replication group successfully, and the 2008 server looks like it's ready to replicate. However, the 2003 R2 server shows this error every few hours, which is preventing replication:
The DFS Replication service detected inconsistent msDFSR-Member object while polling for configuration information. The object at CN=9f7bdc3b-baf4-4172-abc5-b151d0b14665,CN=Topology,CN=RGName,CN=DFSR-GlobalSettings,CN=System,DC=xxx,DC=org references another object at CN=DC04,OU=Domain Controllers,DC=xxx,DC=org that does not exist.
DC04 is the name of the 2008 server, and does exist in AD at the specified location. The servers are connected via a site to site VPN, and can ping each other, view each others' shares, etc, so it doesn't look like a connection issue. I've applied all the DFS hotfixes specified at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958802?ppud=4&wa=wsignin1.0, but none of them made any difference.
I'm at a loss of where to look next.

Try this, on the 2003 server, I am not sure if it has the dfsutil.exe tool but I think you can download it.
Then run dfsutil /spcinfo -Displays the content of SPC. The SPC contains the list of trusted domains; under each trusted domain there may be one or more domain controllers.
Next try dfsutil /spcflush - Forces the client to fetch the latest information on the trusted domains and their domain controllers, when the client programs try to access a corresponding link or root. By using this option, the client flushes out its cached knowledge about the trusted domains and the domain controllers of these domains.
You can also use drsfdiag.exe. For example:
dfsrdiag.exe PollAD /Member:DOMAIN\Server1
Check the following links:
Are there any events in the Event logs of the computers (Evend IDs)?
Also make sure that firewall is not blocking any ports http://support.microsoft.com/kb/832017#method9

Thanks for the reply. "dfsutil /spcinfo" shows the DC04 server in the list of DC's for our domain, and running "dfsutil /spcflush", then restarting the DFS Replication service produced the same error. Running dfsrdiag PollAD doesn't affect the results, either. There are events on the 2003 R2 server. There's a warning every time the DFS Replication service starts: EventID: 6804 - no connections are configured. Then I get the EventID 6006 every few hours, which is the event in my original post ("The DFS Replication service detected inconsistent msDFSR-Member..."). The 2 servers are on an unrestricted VPN, and I can telnet from the 2003 R2 server to ports 135 and 5722 of the 2008 server successfully.
Is there anything else we can try? I'm going to contact MS Support directly in the next few days if I can't get this resolved.

Sorry the issue is still occuring.
Does the dfsrdiag.exe ReplicationState /member:servername show any information?
Also did you try run the health reports (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754227.aspx)? Do they show anything?
Try this tool and see if it can get any info from the replication group. I use this to monitor for backlogs, its quite good: http://blogs.technet.com/b/suporte/archive/2010/09/17/dfsrmon-v1-1-0.aspx?CommentPosted=true#commentmessage
If you say you have run the replication hotifx http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2462352 on the 2003 server and its still not resolved, perhaps Microsoft can provide a solution.
If MS resolves the issue please update this post with the solution adopted.
