Server 2008 r2 missing netlogin and failed test advertising

Hello,

We have a Server 2008 r2 machine promoted to domain controller with a current server 2000 DC.

When DCDIAG is run these errors occur:

1. failed test advertising

2. NetLogin share cannot be found

3. KDC cannot find a suitable certificate

We would like to resolve the issues before moving the FSMO roles over from the 2000 server.

Are there firewalls between the two DCs?   Just want to make sure the proper ports are open

Start with this KB  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947022/en-us

What events are you seeing in your logs?

Thanks

No Firewalls are between the servers.

The log shows this after making the change shown by the above KB:

The Netlogon service could not create server share C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\domain.local\SCRIPTS.  The following error occurred:
The system cannot find the file specified.

if you are unable to see the sysvol share then follow and enable the share.


Set the SysvolReady Flag registry value to "0" and then back to "1" in the registry.

 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 SysvolReady Flag, and then click Modify.
 In the Value data box, type 0 and then click OK.
 Again in the details pane, right-click SysvolReady Flag, and then click
 Modify.  In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.

 Then run NET SHARE and see if the SYSVOL and NETLOGON share is present.
