Netlogon Share Folder Directory

I accidentailly ran the Adprep /rodcprep command on a 2008 server that I was promting to DC on an existing AD envirnment that the current DC is running server 2003 as its OS..

The new server which is running server 2008 does not have the SysVol or the Netlogon directory when I browse the server.

How do I chenge this issue so that the 2008 server that is now a DC and has all the FSMO rules to have the netlogon and sysvol shares?

Have you tried demoting it and re-promiting without the rodc switch?  I'd think if you've promoted it as a read only DC, but don't want it to function as such, then you're in for various issues.

I have already copied the users data and transfered all the FSMO roles to this new server. I do not want to start all over if I do not have to.

In which case I don't know...   but I generally like to let AD do things it's way, rather than trying to hack things that haven't worked correctly afterwards.  

This being said, you shouldn't need to move any user data.  THere's no need to rebuild the server.  Just transfer fsmo, demote, promote, transfer fsmo...  I'd think it would take between 30 and 45 minutes.

Okay, thank you! Will I have to run the adrep/domainprep ...... forestprep command again?

No, once that's all done you shouldn't need to do any of it.  Just dcpromo twice, after you transfer the fsmo's.

I demote and then promote the server but the netlogon diectory is still not present. Any other thoughts?

not immediately - is there anything in the event logs?  Is DNS all correct?  It's probably worth running

dcdiag /v  > dcdiag.txt

and posting the result here.

The issue was with the FRS share. I did a author restore of AD and this resolve the issue. Thank you for your help.
