I have a server 2012 domain controller that I have managed to seize the fsmo roles for the domain. The Sysvol and Netlogon folders did not replicate from the old server and it has failed. Is there any way I can rebuild them on the new server. Group policies are basically default and everything has been working except the sysvol folders are not there.

You can do a straight copy from the old server using robocopy and include any ACLs:
\\oldserver\sysvol\<dns name>\Policies to \\newserver\sysvol\<dns name>\Policies
and
\\oldserver\sysvol\<dns name>\scripts to \\newserver\sysvol\<dns name>\scripts

You ill also need to ensure any Staging Area links are created ok as well.

I just resolved it. I could not get fsr to run on the old server so I set it up to use dfsr. It replicated over.
