I have a fun one here. I have come to an office with only a single domain controller 2003. Crazy. I set up a new 2008 server, installed AD role and found that the sysvol, etc folders are not shared and empty and seeing FRS errors 13508 "The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication" on the 2008 server.
I went to the existing 2003 DC and its showing event 13568 "The File Replication Service has detected that the replica set "DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)" is in JRNL_WRAP_ERROR. "
In the error on the 2003 DC is instructions to edit the registry to "fix" the issue but the question is, if I proceed to enable journal wrap automatic restore, will I blow up the entire environment since there is only one DC ? Is there a way to manually move sysvol contents to the 2008 server, etc to avoid disaster?
I do see that active directory users and computers has shown up on the new DC but not sure if thats relevant
