  • Hi,

    >>my domain there is no policies and script folder also netlogon folder is nor appear.

    Netlogon Share is not a Folder named Netlogon on Domain Controller. In fact it is a folder where all the logon scripts are stored. Script folder under Sysvol folder will act as Netlogon share.

    To check whether this is caused by Sysvol replication, we can do a D2 non-authoritative restore for Sysvol on Windows Server 2008 DC.

    Regarding this point, the following article can be referred to for specific steps.

    Using the BurFlags registry key to reinitialize File Replication Service replica sets


    If the issue persists, we can run command dcdiag /q to check the health of DC, and we can run command Repadmin /showrepl to check the status of replication.

    Besides, regarding this kind of issue, the following thread can also be referred to as reference.

    Hope it helps.

    Best regards,
