scripts folder not replicating

Changes made to logon files (.bat files) in the %systemroot%\sysvol\sysvol\<domain DNS name>\scripts folder on one domain controller are not duplicating to our other DC. Microsoft warns against just doing a copy & paste, so what can I do to fix this?

Sysvol replication uses FRS
What events are you seeing in your event logs.  Any of the events listed here:

Is there any error/warning in output for netdiag or dcdiag on the DCs?

In the FRS log of the server not getting the changes: event ID 13508 with the description talking about trouble enabling replication from the other server.

Then you should look at the link Mkline provided "Troubleshoot event id 13508 without a 13509 event followed".

If you can't find anything wrong then you could try to do a non-authoritative restart of the SYSVOL of the DC that is "out of sync". Since you only have two DCs you can count policies/scripts on each Sysvols to see if they are inconsistent.

1. Stop NTFRS service
2. Set the BurFlags key to "D2" (hex)
3. Restart NTFRS

Correction: out of 4 DC's, the one not getting the changes shows error ID 13568.

Fixed it by doing the following:
Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
Click down the key path:
   "System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters"
Double click on the value name
   "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore"
and update the value to 1.
Restarted the service.

snusgubbenCommented:
FYI you should not use the "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" on 2003 DC's but instead use the D2 BurFlags method that is the "gentle" way to get out of JournalWrap.

Important Microsoft does not recommend that you use this registry setting, and it should not be used post-Windows 2000 SP3.
