Sysvol Not Replicating

I have an SBS2003 server that is the only domain controller. I recently installed a Server 2008 R2 server and ran DCpromo. All went well with no errors, but when I look in C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\allsaintsaustin.local

all I see is: DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory (hidden)

there is nothing else.

When I run Dcdiag these are the results:

C:\Users\Administrator.ALLSAINTSAUSTIN>dcdiag

Directory Server Diagnosis

Performing initial setup:
   Trying to find home server...
   Home Server = AllSaints-DC
   * Identified AD Forest.
   Done gathering initial info.

Darius GhassemCommented:
Alright so, we are going to do the burflag method to fix this problem. Make sure Windows 2008 Server is pointing to other DC for DNS


Take backup of the policies and script folders from both the servers from c:\Windows\Sysvol\domain

Stopp NTFRS service on both DCs.
Make one of the DCs authoritative server by modifying registry setting : Navigate to registry HKLM\System\CCS\Services\NTFRS\Parameters\CumlativeReplicaSets and Set the Burflags value to D4. This should be done with server which has the Updated information available or correct data.

Go to other DC and make that Non-authoritative by navigating to same registry location HKLM\System\CCS\Services\NTFRS\Parameters\CumlativeReplicaSets and Set the Burflags value to D2.

Restarted Ntfrs service on both servers and forced replication to see event 13516 in event viewer for FRS.

I did the blur flags already and restarted the ntfrs service as well. how do I force replication now or does restarting the ntfrs service force replication?

I do see event 13516. Everything seems to have replicated and dcdiag looks good now.

One more question. I am decommissioning the SBS2003 server tomorrow and the new 2008 server is going to be the only DC. Do I need to set the blur flags back to default on the 2008 and 2003 server before I do this?

Darius GhassemCommented:
No this is done all when you restart the service
