I'm trying to demote an old 2003 master Domain Controller with a new 2008 server.
I have successfully transferred all FSMO roles to the new DC. And temporary the new DC is a secondary DNS server.
My problem is that the SYSVOL and NETLOGON share was not created when promoting the new DC.
I tried to edit the BurFlags but this only helped med create the SYVOL share, not NETLOGON.
The “SYSVOL\domain name” is empty.
I got a third domain controller on the same domain that has worked as a secondary domain controller for the master DC I’m trying to demote. And I discovered that the SYSVOL share was empty on that server to.
I have checked that all 3 servers are registered correctly in DNS. And all servers are listed in “Sites and Services”.
Now I’m stuck!
