    Gurus,
    I demoted a single dc and in it's place put two dc's. I transferred roles
    but did not run 'gpprep'. Mea culpa. Now I cannot edit GPO's and 'ntfrsutl
    ds' indicates a cracked domain on both dc's. I am not recieving Event 13562
    in the FRS event log. The solution in Q312862 is to use ADSIEdit and copy
    the DN path of the NTDS settings Configuration container to the
    Server-Reference attribute of the nTRFS member. Okay, sounds easy, but there
    is already a reference to itself in each of the dc's. It is not a null
    reference. Not only that, you get an error indicating this attrib is owned
    by the System and you cannot change it, even if you are supposed to.

    I believe that the two dc's are still looking for <sysvol> on the demoted
    server.

    I have installed and run Sonar on this dc and discovered that the sysvol
    folder is not shared. Huh?
