DFS Replication does not work for NETLOGON and SYSVOL after Windows Server 2019 joining Windows Server 2012 AD RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have upgraded all Windows Server 2012 DCs from using FRS to DFS successfully with a new SYSVOL_DFSR folder shared as SYSVOL. DFS replication is fine for NETOLOGON and SYSVOL. When joining a Windows Server 2019 to this domain, domain logon function is fine, but DFS replication on NETLOGON and SYSVOL does not work. No NETLOGON and SYSVOL share is recreated. I have tried to change the SysvolReady flag to 1 in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters and created a scripts folder in C:\Windows\SYSVOL\domain. The NETLOGON and SYSVOL share folders were created. However, DFS replication still did not work. (Note: When joining 2019 Server to 2012 AD, I specified the default SYSVOL folder instead of SYSVOL_DFSR). What should I do in order to let DFS work in 2019 DC with 2012 DCs?
