We have recently added a 2012 server to our existing domain (2 x 2008 R2 servers). If I look in the Sysvol folder it looks the same as the other 2 but any changes are not replicated.

Can anyone help?

Is the SYSVOL folders shared on 2012 DCs? From command prompt run

net share

Make sure SYSVOL is shared.

Any error message or warning in 'File Replication Service', 'Directory Service' or 'DFS Replication' event log in Event viewer?

Those event logs are under 'Applications and Services Logs' in Event Viewer.

Hi Abdul
DFS Replication has this:
The DFS Replication service stopped replication on volume C:. This occurs when a DFSR JET database is not shut down cleanly and Auto Recovery is disabled. To resolve this issue, back up the files in the affected replicated folders, and then use the ResumeReplication WMI method to resume replication.

Directory Service log looks OK. Not using File Replication Service
