After a migration from sbs2003 to server 2008 R2 standard we are unable to browse network shares. I have noticed the Global Catalog is unavaliable on the new server. After running netdom query fsmo, all roles are correct. Can someone point me in the right direction with this?

We have decided to redo the entire domain due to a failed migration.
