Missing Netlogon share and folder

I am using DFSR for sysvol_dfsr replication.  I am missing the Netlogon share on one of my domain controllers.  I have done a non-authoritative restore of the domain folder and that has rebuilt correctly. I can see the Policies Folder and the Scripts folder within the Domain folder. All is present and correct.

Eventlog after doing a non authoritative restore
"The DFS Replication service successfully initialized the SYSVOL replicated folder at local path C:\Windows\SYSVOL_DFSR\domain. This member has completed initial synchronization of SYSVOL with partner DATASVR.whitehaven.brockbanks.co.uk.  To check for the presence of the SYSVOL share, open a command prompt window and then type "net share". "

I am confident the DFS Replication is working well, as I can create a file in the Scripts folder and it replicates instantly.

The  c:\windows\sysvol_dfsr\sysvol folder is shared but is empty so there can never be a netlogon folder. I would expect a domain name junction to be visible in this sysvol folder that links back to c:\windows\sysvol_dfsr\domain but this junction is missing.

Restarting Netlogon service has made no difference.

How can I rebuild the link so that it can be shared by Netlogon service?

Any help greatly appreciated.

To work around this issue, set the SysvolReady Flag registry value to "0" and then back to "1" in the registry. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate the following subkey in Registry Editor:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters
In the details pane, right-click the SysvolReady flag, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
Again in the details pane, right-click the SysvolReady flag, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
Note This will cause Netlogon to share out SYSVOL, and the scripts folder will be present.

i am experiencing the same problem - i actually decommissioned the server completely, waited for it to replicate completely throughout the domain and then created a new server from scratch. still didnt have the netlogon or the sysvol share. i did the above kb fix too - but still no netlogon share, but sysvol share is there.
i also went through the process detailed in http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc816596%28v=ws.10%29.aspx to no avail - but i assume this is also just for sysvol.
any ideas?
