    I have added 2 X 2008 dc's to my 2000 AD after running forest and domainprep.

    I now have event id 13565 within the FRS log and it reads:

    Log Name: File Replication Service
    Source: NtFrs
    Date: 30/03/2009 11:28:07
    Event ID: 13565
    Task Category: None
    Level: Warning
    Keywords: Classic
    User: N/A
    File Replication Service is initializing the system volume with data from
    another domain controller. Computer server cannot become a domain controller
    until this process is complete. The system volume will then be shared as

    To check for the SYSVOL share, at the command prompt, type:
    net share

    When File Replication Service completes the initialization process, the
    SYSVOL share will appear.

    The initialization of the system volume can take some time. The time is
    dependent on the amount of data in the system volume, the availability of
    other domain controllers, and the replication interval between domain

    Anybody have any thoughts in how to speed the process along?

  2. Hello Stephen3rd,

    On the 2008 Dc's check that the "File replication" service is started and
    set to automatic. Then run dcdiag and if it states an error about missing
    object relating to article Q312862 follow the article to add the missing

    Thanks Meinolf for the reply.

    DCdiag does come up with a missing object reference but is for a dc that was
    removed almost 2 years ago. We have no need to add any reference to this
    server as it has been out of our environment for a long time.

    Or will i be forced to sort this issue out to enable the FRS service to
    share out the Sysvol foder?

  4. Hello Stephen3rd,

    File replication service has to run for sysvol sharing.

    If you have references to removed DC's run metabase cleanup according to
    this article:

    Also make sure that the removed server is not existing in AD sites and services
    under the servers list. Will not be removed there during demoting of a server,
    you have to do it manual.

    Best regards
