Dear Sir,
We have 2 domain controllers in our domain which running Windows 2000. We have found that the DC2's sysvol do not share. Therefore, the logon script and policies cannot be sync. I have tried to depromo and promo DC2 again. But the result is the same.
Please help.
Best regards,

    Run "dcdiag /v /e /c /f:dcdiag.txt" to see if you spot anything. Attach the log if you want to.

    Check the event log (File Replication Service) for Event 13508.
    If you find it there then there are some DNS issues that you may have to address. I am considering that this is a single site.
    Run dcdiag and netdiag for failed tests.
    Just make sure that the PDC is pointing to itself for Primary DNS and the ADC is point to PDC for primary DNS.

    Restart the File Replication Service,

    If solutions don't work then go to REGEDIT

    Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters

    Change the SysvolReady key value to 1 and then exit regedit.

    You will have the sysvol folder shared.

    Dear all,
    The problem still exist. Is there any third party tools can fixed the SYSVOL folder synchorization problem. Now the DC2's sync folder is not share. Strange.

    There are no third party tools that will fix this.

    Which DC is sharing SYSVOL and which is not?

    You posted in the Server 2008 zone, but you do have Server 2000 DCs. Is that correct?
