No SYSVOL directory and unable to do non-authoritative restore on server 2012 R2
Posted on 2014-03-16
I have an active directory domain that I have inherited and they want to upgrade to 2012 R2.
I have tried to introduce a Windows 2012 R2 domain controller and everything replicates except for the SYSVOL directory.
Everything else replicates fine.
Other weird things are that they are running server 2008 domain controllers and only had the functional level of the domain at Windows 2000 (now 2003) and DNS is not AD integrated.
I went to do a non-authoritative restore but there is no DFSR-LocalSettings in ADSIEdit to do this. The domain controller does have NTFRS Subscriptions however.
Any help on how to get SYSVOL replication working would be appreciated.
