Hi guys,

We've had a site running for about 2 years, with a PDC Server 2008R2, and a 6+ year old 2003R2 as a backup DC.  Was running well, until several hard shutdowns later we had issues with clients PC's not being able to access the server via DNS name - IP was ok.  At that time DCDIAG was giving numerous errors as expected, event log was rather full.  Several hours of troubleshooting these errors later, all FSMO roles have been moved to the 2008 box (nicely, not seized), and the 2003 has been demoted and will not be used again.  Thanks to many Experts-Exchange articles to get me this far!  I also had to create and register DNS.

Only issue left, is the SYSVOL and NETLOGON shares are missing.  

Event log ID 5706
The Netlogon service could not create server share C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol.  The following error occurred:
Access is denied.
Event log ID 5706
The Netlogon service could not create server share C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\whitehaven.local\SCRIPTS.  The following error occurred:
Access is denied.

I've attached results of dcdiag, dcdiag /test:dns and ipconfig /all

Have found several articles referencing the issue, though have not made much headway on this last niggling issue!

Thanks
