DFSR_Sysvol Folder

New DC added after the DFSR migration still shows C:\Windows\sysvol folder still rather than C:\Windows\Dfsr_Sysvol folder. No issues with replication and can see newly created files on both ends. Only the old DC has the new DFSR folder.

The older DC was upgraded from FRS replication to DRSR

Perfectly normal.  The old server needed both during the migration. The new server only needed a sysvol folder. It's still replicated by DFSR; it jsut doesn't need that name because it never needed to coexist with an FRS version of that folder.


Thanks David and Cliff for the quick response
