You have nothing to lose.  The local copy of sysvol is trashed.  If you have another DC that is running and sysvol is healthy,  doing the fix on the R2 box will cause it to get rid of its bad copy and immediately pull from a reliable source.

What server sysvol is bad the one getting the journal wrap error? Should I do system state backups on both servers?

PlaceboC6Commented:
The server with journal wrap errors in the FRS log is the one that is bad.   There is a registry key in the error message that will fix the issue.  Assuming you have a good copy of sysvol running on the other DC.

Although doing the fix on the bad dc shouldn't hurt anything (it's already messed up),  I'm always a fan of good system state backups.  :)

People can still log in. So I assume the other domain controller is functioning normal. How can I tell?

I am also getting 1030 and 1058 errors are they the same issue?
0
 
PlaceboC6Commented:
1030 and 1058 means that the client is trying to apply group policy and it is failing.  If these errors are on the server,  it is because it is looking locally to apply Group Policy and since you are in journal wrap and your sysvol is broken...it is failing.

Typically these errors can be because of dns configuration, network issue, someone turned off a DC for some reason, etc....however in this case we know the server itself is in journal wrap.

We added a 3 dc in last week before we knew we had this issue. If the second server is good would it have replicated to the third as far as the sysvol is concerned?

What if we transfer the fsmo roles over to the good server. Would that fix the issue?

PlaceboC6Commented:
No.  

A journal wrap condition is independent of anything such as FSMO roles and the AD database itself.  This is a file replication breakdown for group policy files only.

ok. I just checked and the two other servers say scecli are being applied correctly. Is that a good sign?

PlaceboC6Commented:
Yes indeed that is a good sign.
