DFSR Replication Error on member 2016 Server

Copper Contributor

We have 4 file servers and 4 domain controllers. 3 of the 4 file servers and 4 of the domain controllers are replicating with no issues. One file server is not replicating at all and we are receiving event id's 6404 and 5008 in the logs when looking in the event viewer.


The DFS Replication service failed to replicate the replicated folder at local path X:\XXXXX because the local path is not the fully qualified path name of an existing, accessible local folder.

I have looked and cannot find any information on how to properly correct this issue.
