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

run repadmin /replsum and if you do not find any replication errors perform below

first check that you have proper Connection objects has been created in Sites and Services

Browse \\WorkingDC.domain.local copy sysvol & netlogon and keep backup on ProblemDC &  WorkingDC (If can not browse check network connectivity/Port and don't proceed further)

Go to WorkingDC  stop NTFRS service open regedit and go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup" change the burflag value to D4 Start NTFRS(File Replication service) service and wait for File Replication event ID 13516 now Go to ProblemDC  stop NTFRS service open regedit go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup" change the burflag value to D2 -> Start NTFRS(File Replication service) service and wait for File Replication event ID 13516 now

Check Now your sysvol and netlogon shares are available

Above is called Authoritive(D4) and non-Authoritive Restore (D2)

In addition to sarang

This can be sort out by setting the new domain controller as non-authoritative.

To get the DC to re-establish the shares properly and publish it under the domain namespace

one more link to refer

you can also refer a quite similar discussion on EE itself
