Moving from FRS to DFSR - missed a step

Missed the first step (dfsrmig /CreateGlobalObjects) and went through dfsrmig /setglobalstate 1 - 3. When I run dfsrmig /getglobalstate I get Current DFSR global state: 'Eliminated' Succeeded. net share shows NETLOGON as C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\valpreda.local\SCRIPTS and SYSVOL as C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol. I do not have a SYSVOL_DFSR folder.

File Replication service is stopped and disabled.

Am I screwed?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here are the correct steps

just go like this:
Dfsrmig /setglobalstate 1
Dfsrmig /getmigrationstate
#All domain controllers have migrated successfully and then go to global 2
Dfsrmig /setglobalstate 2
Dfsrmig /getmigrationstate
#wait until succeed then go to step 3
Dfsrmig /setglobalstate 3
Dfsrmig /getmigrationstate

There you go :) so that you're just fine I think.

You skipped like 2 steps, go one by one.

I may be getting worked up over nothing. Not sure why I don't have a SYSVOL_DFSR....but I see 'Domain System Volume' in DFS management.

I think I'm okay.

Who perfrmend your FRS -> DFSR migration? If it was before your time, then only DC's which were originally running FRS at the time of migration will have a SYSVOL_DFSR folder. DC's promoted since SYSVOL was upgraded from FRS to DFSR will have the normal SYSVOL directory.
