SBS 2003 to Server 2008/Exchange 2007 Migration Problems

I am in the process of migrating our single server network from SBS 2003 to Server 2008.  The process so far:
1. Added Server2008 to the SBS domain
2. Promoted Server2008 to Domain Controller
3. Installed Exchange 2007 and migrated successfully (ran all the /prep stuff)
4. Added RRAS role to Server2008 and move PPTP VPN across successfully.
5. Changed Operations Masters (Infrastructure,PDC and RID) to Server2008

I am now trying to move the client logon across to Server2008 stuck with the following problems:
1.  There is no NETLOGON share on the Server2008.  If I create one it just disappears.
2.  When I run nltest /dsgetdc:mydomain on Server2008 I get the detail of the SBS server returned where I thought is should now return Server2008.
3.  dcdiag returns a number of errors (see below).

The actual names used for the lists below are:
Domain Name 'aussieadventuresailing'
SBS Server Name 'AASSERVER' static IP 192.168.127.1
Server2008 Name 'OASSERVER' static IP 192.168.127.2
DHCP on Server2008 allocates from pool 192.168.127.101/199

Any help would be appreciated.

After 100's of dead ends I managed to fix the SYSVOL/NETLOGON issues using the brflags as outlined in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290762.

I was disappointed the "Experts" were not able to point me to this solution earlier.

Cheers.

That KB article doesn't even mention 2008, so I, too, am wondering what exactly was done, and on which server.  I'm having the same issue after doing a migration installation from 2003 SBS to 2008 SBS 64-bit.
