Domain controller not updating SYSVOL

Hi,

I have a network with:
1 x 2012R2 DC
1 x 2008 DC
1 x 2003 DC

The 2003 DC is working fine and is in the process of being retired and will be correctly DCPromo soon.

I am having issues with the 2008 DC though.

The group policy managements is showing that this DC is not in sync and is inaccessbile.

I can browse to the SYSVOL folder of that server from the other DC's.

I have checked the metadata cleanup to make sure there are no old servers lying around and all looks ok.

DCDIAG is fine on both the other servers.

If i run it on the 2008 server i just get FRS events.

thanks

FRS is file replication service which could be why your sysvol is not working.  Could you post results of dcdiag?

Cna you login to the 2008R2 DC and open a command prompt and then type net share make sure that they are shared out. Also check the Directory Service Logs on this DC specifically.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

The share in there in net share

I checked the logs and there is nothing from that last week but there was this from a week ago.

This is the replication status for the following directory partition on this directory server.
 
Directory partition:
CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAIN,DC=local
 
This directory server has not received replication information from a number of directory servers within the configured latency interval.
 
Latency Interval (Hours):
24
Number of directory servers in all sites:
1
Number of directory servers in this site:
1
 
The latency interval can be modified with the following registry key.
 
Registry Key:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters\Replicator latency error interval (hours)
 
To identify the directory servers by name, use the dcdiag.exe tool.
You can also use the support tool repadmin.exe to display the replication latencies of the directory servers.   The command is "repadmin /showvector /latency <partition-dn>".
