I have added 2 X 2008 dc's to my 2000 AD after running forest and domainprep.
I now have event id 13565 within the FRS log and it reads:
Log Name: File Replication Service
Date: 30/03/2009 11:28:07
Event ID: 13565
Task Category: None
File Replication Service is initializing the system volume with data from
another domain controller. Computer server cannot become a domain controller
until this process is complete. The system volume will then be shared as
To check for the SYSVOL share, at the command prompt, type:
When File Replication Service completes the initialization process, the
SYSVOL share will appear.
The initialization of the system volume can take some time. The time is
dependent on the amount of data in the system volume, the availability of
other domain controllers, and the replication interval between domain
Anybody have any thoughts in how to speed the process along?
