Got some problems with the sysvol directory not replicating between two
servers which are in the same site. Both are obviously DC's and they are
also GC's. Connectivity is fine, DNS is fine, Active Directory changes get
replicated immediately between the two DC's.
The strange thing is that im not getting any errors File Replication
Services event log. I was getting this error last week:
Event ID 13559
The File Replication Service has detected that the replica root path has
changed from "c:\windows\sysvol\domain" to "c:\windows\sysvol\domain". If
this is an intentional move then a file with the name
NTFRS_CMD_FILE_MOVE_ROOT needs to be created under the new root path.
This was detected for the following replica set:
"DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)"
I did what the error suggested and created a file named
NTFRS_CMD_FILE_MOVE_ROOT under the root path which stopped the error
occurring and after that this event was logged on both DC's:
event id 13516:
The File Replication Service is no longer preventing the computer from
becoming a domain controller. The system volume has been successfully
initialized and the Netlogon service has been notified that the system volume
is now ready to be shared as SYSVOL.
But as yet no sysvol replication has taken place, could it be something to
do with the Journal being Wrapped? Do i need to do the BurFlags and D2
any help would be great. thanks.
