Missing Netlogon share and folder
Posted on 2013-12-12
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.
