Windows 2008 R2: DCDIAG replication error

Problem:  When running DCDIAG on my Server 2008 domain controller, I get the following error:

(DC name): This replication path was preempted by higher priority work
from DC1 to DC2
Reason: The operation completed successfully
The last success occurred at (never)

I tried DCDIAG /fix without any luck and ran DCDIAG on my other DC’s  and didn’t get the error.

Solution:  I went into Active Directory Sites and Services and checked the NTDS settings of the two Domain Controllers named in the error.  Turns out that DC was set to replicate with a DC that was no longer on my network.   Changed the replication to the proper DC, waited about 30 min and the error was gone from DCDIAG.
