NETLOGON and SYSVOL shares are not created after DCPROMO in Windows 2003

Hi,


This is weird! I just do DCPROMO to add DC role in my Windows 2003 and the NETLOGON and SYSVOL shares are not created.

Is it normal or it takes time to create?

Thanks

assuming its not the first dc its possible you have an issue with replication
check the event logs on a DC, and on that DC to see if you can see anything
there is a specific File Replication service log
Was the ntds database size is same??

If only sysvol share issue...

Make sure the preferred DNS is pointing to the replication patner.
Restart the server...

Check the services status in new DC
Netlogon
DFS
FRS

Make sure the services are in started state....?

Check the server object displayed in ADUC and Sites and services console...

Regards,
Prem
