I am trying to copy sysvol to D drive from c drive  because of less space.

I can't see ADSIEDIT in mmc or how to use LDP.EXE  TO modify the value of the FRSRootPath attribute in Active Directory

when can we delete the sysvol folder on c drive, I have copied the sysvol folder on d drive now
What do you mean copied.  There is a guide on transitioning sysvol from firs to DFS but your system must be at least w2k3 R2

Sysvol is one of two the netlogon is a sub folder within sysvol

Netlogon is the sysvol\sysvol\addomainname\scripts
Sysvol is the second sysvol
Netlogon is the scripts folder share.

i think you are starting on a path that a server upgrade in the cycle may help.  If you are running out of space on the C: drive remove old updates c:\windows\ if you have logs in c:\windows\system32\LogFiles clean them up.

You would need to stop services to make these changes....

Try it first locally and see if it works out.

IMHO, you are boxing yourself into a corner of possible massive problems.
Retaining the same replication technologies, means that there are other things that have to be updated.
Do you have the option to transition to DFS-r based sysvol replication? If so, it includes a step by step guide to transition part creates a new sysvol_ folder then establish those same folders across your other DCs, establish DFS-r replication among them. Confirm the replication is working, and then proceed to transition..........

there are other dc's in my environment, I am working on one particular dc where c drive space volume has gone low and copying sysvol to d drive on  same server.

I believe the data set in the AD, you changing it might apply to all.

check c:\windows\softwaredistribution..

If your system has wsus install, move the content to D drive that should free up about 20-80 GB depending on your product selection.
you would need to use wsusutil to move it.  Relocating the DB might also be a less painfull risky move.

windows 2003 Sp2 does not include DFS-R.

Check your user profiles on this system and consider moving some of those by creating with the profiles that consume a large amount of space a link to a d:\users\%username% folder where the user can store .........
