I cant seem to get the SYSVOL folder to replicate. Once joined my Event Log spits out the following.
The DFS Replication service initialized SYSVOL at local path C:\Windows\SYSVOL\domain and is waiting to perform initial replication. The replicated folder will remain in the initial synchronization state until it has replicated with its partner NTE-AUTHSRV.NASUTEK-CORE.nisn.nasutek.com. If the server was in the process of being promoted to a domain controller, the domain controller will not advertize and function as a domain controller until this issue is resolved. This can occur if the specified partner is also in the initial synchronization state, or if sharing violations are encountered on this server or the synchronization partner. If this event occurred during the migration of SYSVOL from File Replication service (FRS) to DFS Replication, changes will not replicate out until this issue is resolved. This can cause the SYSVOL folder on this server to become out of sync with other domain controllers.

The DFS Replication service failed to update configuration in Active Directory Domain Services. The service will retry this operation periodically.

The DFS Replication service has detected that no connections are configured for replication group Domain System Volume. No data is being replicated for this replication group.

I tried everything I can possibly think of but this one just stumps me.
EDIT: I added some additional information at https://gist.github.com/michael-manley/5343111 for any other commands I executed.
