Hi guys hope you are well and can help.

We wish to force replication of the sysvol on 2 domain controllers, and went to use ntfrsutl with the forcerepl, but as you can see below, in our version, it is not present.

Can anyone suggest how to get the version of ntfrsutl that does have the required functionality to force replication of the sysvol between domain controllers?

Our servers are running Windows Server 2003 with SP2.

Any help greatly appreciated.
