I have a small business server that needed rebuilding because no one can get access to group policies, (sysvol folders), I have been through microsoft we already tried applying the default security template, to no avail. Microsoft have advised me the only way to go is start from scratch.
I have no pre corruption system state to work from, I want to take a system state now so my question is below :
When you restore the system state primarily sysvol ,does it just repopulate it or reapply all the NTFS permssions on the folder ?
I am thinking that i might be able to save myself a lot of time as i know the problem at the moment is permissions if they did not get reapplied from the system state it should work ?

The system state includes the sysvol folder, the registry, active directory and system files.
If you backup the current system state from a non-working machine then its almost inevitable that when you restore it the new machine will be restored to the non-working state.

I'm affrad you found out the hard way just how important it is to make and keep backups

Unfortunatley its a newly inherited system, not mine as usual just there to sort it out !  I know the gpo's are good because they apply to the DC fine,

Its just all the workstations and users cant read the sysvol folder, so does the system state reapply ntfs permissions, if it purely places the relivant data back in, excluding ntfs permissons could you say why it wont work

found that i can restore to an alternate location, then do a restore without security permissions
