Missing SYSVOL Share folders
Posted on 2008-10-01
Two DCs w/ integrated DNS. Good DC has all the FSMO roles and the GC.
On my second DC, I am missing the SYSVOL share folders after doing a DC restore. I have tried the following:
Followed the procedures to modify the registry burflags (D4 on authoritative DC, D2 on problem DC). That didn't work.
Wouldn't let me demote as SYSVOL shares were missing so I did a /forceremoval. Demoted problem DC, deleted all references using adsiedit and deleted all references in DNS and Sites and Services. Then promoted again to a DC.
Problem DC shows both both servernames and _msdcs folders - all entries are OK
However authoritative DC does not show problem DC in DNS.
SYSVOL folders still missing.
Anyone have any suggestions?
