No Replica Sets on the domain controllers

Ok situation.

Got 3 domain controllers on site. All on the same LAn so no firewall issues.

2 of the main dc (one of which has all the master roles) have no replica sets. Using "ntfrsutl sets" I recieve "active Sets" and "deleted replica sets" But nothing there. The third however has.

The problem was when the third DC was added the sysvol and netlogon share was not created.

How do I go about getting the sysvol and netlogon share working if I cant use the Burflags method (no guid registry key)

Also how do I go about creating replica sets on the 2 dc that don't appear to have any.

Well after searching about I've found this http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;312862

This seems to explain my problem. Missing FRS Subscriber objects in AD. All the FRS Members are their just two of my Subscribers are missing.

Going to have a go and report what I find.

Well following the articale I've managed to recreate the missing subscribers to the Domain System Volume replcia set.

After doing this using the "ntfrsutl sets and ntfrsutl ds" return positive results.

Have since carried out the Burflags reg edit to recreated the SYSVOL & NETLOGON Share on my domain controllers.

All seem to have recreated and finished promoting the server to a DC.

Will leave it through the night and check the logs in the morning.
