One DC Cannot replicate SYSVOL and VOLUME


  • The Netlogon service could not create server share C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\DOMAIN.LOCAL\SCRIPTS.  The following error occurred: 
    The system cannot find the file specified.

    I tried to follow guide from Microsoft.

     Starting test: SystemLog
        An error event occurred.  EventID: 0x0000164A
           Time Generated: 01/25/2017   10:41:08
           Event String:
           The Netlogon service could not create server share C:\Windows\SYSVOL
    ol\DOMAIN.LOCAL\SCRIPTS.  The following error occurred:
        ......................... DCR failed test SystemLog
     Starting test: VerifyReferences
        Some objects relating to the DC DCR have problems:

        ......................... DCR failed test VerifyReferences


    the NETLOGON and SYSVOL on one of the servers. And tried to fix this using burflags

    But my PDC is missing registry hive

         HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup

    ALSO the failed DOMAIN is MISSING from ADSIEDIT the following:

     “CN=SYSVOL Subscription” entry by RMB in the right pane

    The main Server holding FSMO  is Windows 2012 R2 based. I also got a Windows 2008 R2 Domain server that fails to replicate sysvol and netlogon. I am trying to fix this.

    The other two ads, Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 2012 R2 both have healthy SYSVOL and NETLOGON

    Thank you
