    I compared 2 PCs on the same domain and found that there are different
    subfolders in \\domain\netlogon. How come? Thanks. Ian

  2. Hi Ian,

    It sounds like you have a problem with the File Replication Service between
    your domain controllers. If you check the DCs individually you should find
    some inconsistencies. Check the File Replication Service event log for
    more information on the error.

    Hope this helps,

    It means that 2 PCs connect 2 different DCs. Is there a way to configure 2
    PCs to connect the same DC?

  4. Hi Ian,

    Access to sysvol and netlogon should be done to \\domain which will
    generate a referral to one of the DCs to pick up the scripts/policies.
    This is for fault tolerance. If you were to configure your scripts to run
    from a specific DC then fault tolerance would be lost. It would be best to
    investigate why the files are not replicating between the existing DCs

    Hope this helps,

    I just want to troubleshoot a PC app problem that dose not show up when
    logging on another PC. The 2 PC connect 2 different DCs. If there is a simple
    way to connect the problem PC to another DC, it will see if the app problem
    will go away.

  6. Hi Ian,

    Brian's point is that, the two Netlogon shares should never be different (at
    least, not for very long) - SYSVOL replication should keep them perfectly
    synchronized. Rather than pointing clients to particular DC's, the actual
    problem should be fixed so that clients will point to the DC they choose,
    per best practices and SYSVOL's intention.

    It looks like there is no way to do that.
