  • Maybe AD is not replicating correctly. Is this a second DC you promote for the first time or were there other DC's in this forrest prior? Is there were other DC's (orphaned) that might be the problem.

    Try a D2/D4 burflag authorative restore on the PDC and a non authorative restore on the member server.

  • The first thing to check is that you are using correct IP settings to make sure that DNS registration / resolution works fine and that ports needed for AD replication are opened in both directions between your DCs. Check my troubleshooting guide which will help you when checking: http://www.ahmedmalek.com/web/fr/articles.asp?artid=23

    If everything is fine then a non-authoritative restore of SYSVOL/Netlogon on the new DC usually fixes the issue. The details are shared within the guide.

  • Hi Gayan Abeydeera,

    6..7 Months ago i was also facing the same Prob. during ADC server P2V migration activity. i tried a lot of options but finally it has been resolved as below:

    1-As per Article https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/kb/947022  i have share netlogon. 

    2-On Primary Domain Controller-Authoritative restore & On Additional Domain Controller-Non-Authoritative restore. 

    Hope it may also helpful for you. But before doing it pl. check the basic configuration as TCP/IP and DNS configuration on DC & ADC.
