SYSVOL problems

Hi Experts,

I have several DC´s in my network WIN2008.
With my sysvol I have problems and some GPUPDATES not working.

I found out, when I connect to my DC01and check the SYSVOL, all ok.
But when I connect to my DC02 the SYSVOL folder is different.

Can you help me to fix it ?

Try to force the FRS replication and check again, also check FRS event log for any error
If require do a non-authoritative restore of SYSVOL (also called D2 restore)

and hint from BRAIN123422 I made a NON AUTHORITIVE restore.

Will SzymkowskiSenior Solution ArchitectCommented:
To restore sysvol for those DC's you will want to perform a non-authoritative restore of the DC (if they do not hold any of the FSMO roles).

I would also recommending checking the replicaiton as well using the below commands...
repadmin /replsum
repadmin /showrepl
repadmin /bridgeheads

also check DC health with
DCDiag /v
