Domain controller not updating SYSVOL

Last Modified: 2015-07-26

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.
