HELP! VNX 5300 File Replication to another VNX 5300

Hello, I am trying to replicate an NFS file system from one VNX to another.  I have successfully replicated a VDM and CIFS file system.  When I try to replication the NFS file system I get the message below in the wizard.  Why is it saying there is not storage available?  It didnt for the CIFS replication.

no checkpoint storages available on current storage system.

check file pool capacity on source and target VNX. VNX Replication uses checkpoints as part of its replication process. If it can't create/refresh checkpoints (not enough space in the pool) replication will fail.

Okay, I just tried creating the NFS replication and not use the wizard and it worked.  I just specified use the same storage pool for checkpoints.  I didn't have the option in the wizard but did use the wizard for CIFS.  All storage pools have plenty of free space.
