Hi I'm trying to put up a new DC.
On the new server the NETLOGON and SYSVOL shares are missing as the policy folder.
How can I get the replicaton to work.

Has the DCpromo process completed? In the event logs it will show that it is replicating all the AD data. The netlogon shares and sysvol shares are the last things that get added.

If it has fully completed, then check that the file FRS service is started.

If still not showing, then run DCDIAG to investigate the results.
Hope this helps

Bringing a new dc on line means you have to straighten out Host A and SRV records in DNS prior to replication. Try this out and see what happens:

Hi, and thanks! The first sync removed all data in the netlogon share so I had to put back an copy of all the files and recreate the  share. But now its working without any errors in the dcdiag. /Eje
