What is your domain functional level
What is your forest functional level


You can't have a 2003 forest functional level with 2000 DCs.  You will want to start with dcdiag and event log errors to see if you can get more info on the issue.

The 2000 DC can be upgraded but that may not be the issue

Thanks

I know domain is at least 2003, was able to add 08 box to domain but appears to be staging sysvol entries and not creating share's on 08 box, I can have 08 take all roles and it still does not replicate sysvole.  Want to know what happens if I upgrade 2k box to 2003 to make compliant to domain structure, ?

what is odd is that if your domain functional level is 2003 you shouldn't be able to have a 2000 DC in that domain.  Not sure how the domain level was set.

....I'd look at errors/logs on the 2008 box too.

Thanks

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
