Hi,

can you run dcdiag and netdiag and upload the logs. Also upload dcpromo.log it will be under c:\windows\debug folder.

Were there any issues when you performed dcpromo

if you open \\servername do you see sysvol folder

you can compare folder permission and share permission from a working 2008 Dc and apply the changes to broken ones
