I restored my domain controller. The shared volume folder is missing. I managed to recover all the fsmo roles of the server. How can i regain back to the shared volume?

Can you provide more detail?  Are the files present, but the share is missing? Setup the share anew.

The files are not present. The share is also missing. the entire folder of sysvol is not there.

sysvol if part of the system state backup on a DC.
The system state is how you are restoring the DC.
However, if the share you are looking for is not part of the sysvol, it will not be included in the system state backup.  You need to look at your other backups to see whether you can locate the files.

Hi, i like to enquire, can i restore c, d , e drives to the AD server .Than use netbackup system state backup later to restore the system state using AD restore mode. Why i am doing this method , as i believe that the system state backup in the tape drive is corrupted.

I think that is the process that one should follow.  Note that the sysvol is also part of the filesystem such that those files should be on the C drive backup.

As long as this is your only DC, not sure how you come to the conclusion that the backup is corrupt.
The problem is not clear whether the systemstate backup you are using is a normal or incremental.
Copy the task from the resored c:\windows\tasks to another system and see what the ntbackup parameters are in the properties of the task.
If it is incremental for some reason, you have to find the system state backup and then restore it and then restore the incrementals one at a time.

hi, i restored the server from the fullbackup veritas tape for drives c , d and e.  I restarted the server, used my netbackup to restore the system state. When i restarted there was no OS.

I think you have to go through the recovery console to restore the AD.
Not sure how restoring a portion of data "system state" resulted in wiping your OS.
