'Frssysvol' and problems with invalid credentials

In running dcdiag on our network, I received an error on one of our servers. The error stated: "No record of File Replication System, SYSVOL started. The Active Directory may be prevented from starting."

The next line stated the server passed the test frssysvol.

I checked TechNet and MS KB, but found nothing. I ran the dcdiag /fix and ran the scan again, but I got the same message. What can I do to correct the error, or where can I go to look up the error?

I did a search at with "frssysvol" and found several documents with solutions. I think the problem is caused by invalid credentials.
