Missing SYSVOL folder on a Windows Server 2008 R2 computer. DFSR Event ID 6002.
Posted on 2014-12-04
We have two Windows 2008 R2 servers and both are domain controllers (SVR01, DC01). SVR01 was the original domain controller and holds the FSMO roles and has the SYSVOL directory. DC01 was promoted to a domain controller and does not have the Sysvol directory. When I look in the event logs of SVR01 I see an error for EventID 6002:
The DFS Replication service detected invalid msDFSR-Subscriber object data while polling for configuration information.
I have tried doing an authoritative/non-authoritative synchronization but the error persists. When I poll the existing replicas I see that DC01 is in state 2 (awaiting initial sync) but SVR01 shows "No instance(s) available." I also see this when I open the DFS namespaces. Only DC1 shows as having a replication folder for SYSVOL. SVR01 is not listed.
How do I fix this?
