Migration of FRS to DFSR SYSVOL failed

I have an SBSServer 2011 with another domain controller, I'm added a server 2019 DC in ready to move them away from the SBS - to get the 2019 DC in I need to migrate the FRS yo DFSR, I used the DFRSMIG /SetGlobalState 1, 2, 3 and this is now showing as.
All Domain Controllers have migrated successfully to Global state ('Eliminated')
Migration has reached a consistent state on all Domain Controllers.
Succeeded.

However my Netlogon folders have dissappeared, I have found a procedure online to recreate. This says use ADSI EDIT going to the CN=SYSVOL - this isn't there.

Anyone got any advise?

restarted Netlogon couldn't see any errors, the NTFRS service is disabled on all servers.

File Replication Service = FRS. That's the service to restart.
Also, DFSR. Restart.

There are specific logs for Active Directory. What do they say?

The filtered Event Log (Administrators) should also show the bangs ! in it. What is there?
Forget about FRS; it's gone (as it should be). Restarting DFSR and checking for errors is definitely a good idea, though. Also, you mentioned that the NETLOGON share is gone. Does that mean that the SYSVOL share is present, or are they both missing? How about the Sysvol folder hierarchy itself? Does it appear to be intact, or is its content missing?
