Migration to Windows 2008 - SYSVOL & NETLOGON shares missing

Hi,

I've recently added a Windows 2008 Server to my domain. We are replacing the existing DC (Win 2003). I ran adprep /forestprep & adprep /domainprep. Dcpromo'd my 2008 server, and tranferred all FSMO roles ok.

My original DC went down (faulty hardware, hence being replaced) and AD stopped functioning. I noticed that the dcpromo wizard had set the 2003 DC as DNS server. I changed this to my 2008 server, setup forwarders for outside domains, and AD started to function again (I could add users, etc.) I have since managed to get the old DC backup.

Replication works fine with

However, I then went about adding some group policies, when I go to create the Group Policy I get an error "The network name cannot be found".

I ran dcdiag & I fail NCSecDEsc & Netlogons test.

I then checked my 2008 DC and BOTH the SYSVOL & NETLOGON shares are missing. Not sure what to do. Can someone help?

Hi Guys, I got this resolved myself.

I followed the above, then manually recreated the NETLOGON share.

NETLOGONS test now passing
I needn't worry about NCSecDEsc as I'm not putting in a DC in READ ONLY MODE.

Not sure how to close this - mods please help?

You don't need to worry about the NCSecDesc error this is just for Windows 2008 RODC server you can ignore
