Netlogon and Sysvol share

we have a computer which is a Domain Controller, I used to type: \\computername, then I could see the Netlogon and Sysvol shares.
Now I can't see them.
is there any way to find them and share them the way it was before?

thanks

the article is kind of vague.

can you just tell me the physical path to Sysvol folder that I will share as Netlogon, and the other folder
( I don't remeber the name of it) and share it as Sysvol ??

SYSVOL is at C:\WINDOWS\SYSVOL\sysvol, Share Perms  - Admins=Full, Auth Users=Full, Everyone=Read

NETLOGON is at C:\WINDOWS\SYSVOL\sysvol\pridedallas.com\SCRIPTS - Admins=Full, Auth Users=Read

However, I believe your still going to have problems if you don't determine the cause. When did this begin to occur? Do you have other DC's and are they having this problem? Check the Event Logs and see about problems sharing those folders.

First step should be to look in event viewer on the domain controller and find out why the sysvol is not shared, there will be a reason why its not being shared

initially there was no replication between this DC and other DCs, so we searched on the web and found out we can add a registery entry and it will resolve the issue, but it didn't and after then we realized that netlogon and sysvol shares have disapeared, even after deleting the regitery entry we created  the share are still not shwoing up.

So these shares/folders exist on other DC's but not on this one?
Are there still replication issues or maybe other issues still on this server?

I just had a similar problem. Had 3 DC's, the oldest one crashed, and we noticed that none of the other servers had replicated sysvol and netlogon.

I'm guessing you are referring to editing the burflags in the registry? D2 and D4 to rebuild sysvol/netlogon? This didn't work for us either, what we ended up doing was setting 2 of the DC's as members, and just doing D4 on 1 server. This worked like a charm, and we were able to add the other servers back in and they are all replicating like they should.

so the only way to repair that is to Demote to member server then Promote the server to DC?
