I have 2 domain controllers in the same site and as I watch replmon it is showing that replication is successful but sysvol is not replicating.  I check sites and services, schedules, etc,.  What is going wrong?  what should I be looking for?

Are you using FRS (2003) or DFSR (newer in 2008).  Sysvol replicates different from AD replication.  Look at your logs for errors pertaining to sysvol replication.

Some common errors are listed here   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727056.aspx

I looked in Event Viewer and I have a 13568 error on one of the servers.  Looking through technet now.  Do you know of a condensed version of a fix?

Yes, because the 13568 event may give an outdated fix (although it could work).  The AD team discussed that here


D2 non-authoritative restore (burflags) should help you here, they link to the technet article.

Thank You.  Worked like a charm.  I stopped NTFRS, change the BurFlags and restarted the service.  Within 1/2 minute the service recovered, replcated, and all is right with the world!!
