New domain controller, replication fails

I added a new server to an already existing domain and made it a domain controller. Sysvol is on the new dc but without any information.  It is not replicating.  I do not see sysvol or netlogon when I run net share. This is what I get when I do a dcdiag. Thank you

PS C:\Windows\system32> dcdiag

Hi,

Please go through the steps.

#1
Try to access the shares by using \\saporito.local and see if you are able to see the sysvol share. if not then follow the below url 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.

##2
if sysvol share is present then try the authoritative restore of server by playing with registry.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315457

###3
Enable Loose Replication Consistency


 To enable Loose Replication Consistency, follow these steps on the domain controller 2003 that reports the errors messages. Locate and click the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters

2.Click Add Value on the Edit menu.
3.Add the following value:
Value Name: Strict Replication Consistency
 Data type: REG_DWORD
 Value data: If the value is 1, change it to 0.


Also share the Operating system version and number of DC. in your reply.

Hello,

Thank you for helping me.  I went through your steps.  After step #1 I ran 'net share' and I see sysvol but not netlogon.  Here is the results from 'net share'


PS C:\Windows\system32> net share

Share name   Resource                        Remark

----------------------------------------------------------------------
C$           C:\                             Default share

ADMIN$       C:\Windows                      Remote Admin
SYSVOL       C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol        Logon server share
The command completed successfully.

I tried following the directions in step #2 but get the error 'The term 'linkd' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet'

I did complete step # 3. I have 2 servers the original DC is running windows server 2008 R2 and the new DC that is giving me issues is windows server 2012 r2.  Here is what dcdiag looks like now.

I also now see this in the event log on the 2012 DC.


The File Replication Service is no longer preventing the computer MEDMOD-PDC from becoming a domain controller. The system volume has been successfully initialized and the Netlogon service has been notified that the system volume is now ready to be shared as SYSVOL.
 
Type "net share" to check for the SYSVOL share.

Hi,

1. follow the step #1, in earlier post.
2. check the FRS event log.
3. check if fsmo roles are ok, "NETDOM QUERY FSMO"
4. RUN DCDIAG /TEST:DNS
5. Check the LAN property of ADC and make sure the your primary DC IP is configured as first DNS.
