I have a single Domain with one Windows 2011 SBS Domain Controller and a newly joined and DC promoted Windows Server 2012 Standard. Forest and Domain functional levels are both Windows Server 2003.
It seems SYSVOL never replicated correctly with the primary Domain Controller after its promotion to DC, in contrast with Active Directory and DNS Server that replicated fine.
In order to fix the issue, I am thinking of trying a Non-Authoritative restore on the troubled server using ADSIEDIT (former D2 mode on FRS) but CN=DFSR-LocalSettings value which is needed for this action is missing.
I am not sure if that's related or not, but on a home lab i have on an entire Windows 2012 R2 Standard Domain, on Group Policy Management, on Domains option i am getting a "This page shows the status of Active Directory and SYSVOL (DFSR) replication for this domain as it is relates to Group Policy" while on the Windows 2011 SBS Ddomain on the same option, i am getting a "This page shows the status of Active Directory and SYSVOL (FRS) replication for this domain as it is relates to Group Policy".
I am a little confused here i must say and i wonder, is there a chance that i should perform a D2 BURFLAG restore instead of editing ADSIEDIT settings?
Has anyone experienced that situation before?
