I was having an issue in which the SYSVOL and NETLOGON shares were not being generated on a new Windows 2012 R2 server that was promoted into a domain with a Windows 2003 server. I performed the tasks at the following location:
I made a mistake and entered D4 on the domain controller that did not have the SYSVOL and NETLOGON shares. After this, the SYSVOL share appeared and is replicating however the NETLOGON share no longer exists on any domain controller.
At this point I need to recreate the NETLOGON share. Can anyone direct me to the process of doing this?
Run the following command on all domain controllers in the forest.
Net Stop NTFRS (stop the file replication service)
Go Into Registry Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHIN
Change the BurFlags DWORD to = D4 on the Primary Domain Controller and change to D2 on all of the backup domain controllers.
Start the NTFRS service again by using Net Start NTFRS command
