Server 2003 & 2012 DC Down

We recently had a domain controller go down at an offsite location, I have built another 2012 DC, set the static, and put it in place. But it is not pulling our roaming profiles down for users, it states that it is not able to locate, or does not have the permissions to do so. Any thoughts?

Where are roaming profiles located?
On the same DC?

Are you able to logon on workstations without roaming profiles (If you remove roaming profile setting from user properties)?
If not, you need to check if DC promotion is completed correctly?
Are you able to locate netlogon and Sysvol shares on domain controller, if not the behaviour is expected

The roaming profiles are located on another dc which can ping, rdp and connect to that machine. I just walked into this environment a few months ago as all the staff prior to me has left so I cannot very completion of the dc promotion I will have to investigate.

Are both DCs in same AD site, in that case you can set working DC as preferred DC on client machines, shutdown the new DC and check if they are getting there roaming profiles, if they get you get clear picture and then check problem with new DC

What did you have before and what do you have now?
Did your run adprep32 from the S2K12 installation media on the s2K3 box? What is your domain and forest functional level?

Where are the roaming profiles located?

remember that 2012 uses dfs instead of frs. I would first start with the event logs to see if there are any error/warning messages in AD/FRS/DFS/DNS event logs. from there you might get some hint to go in right direction.
