    has anybody done a restore of the sysvol folder using the burflags reg hack?
    does it work and what are the repercussions?

    It most definitely works (within PSS it used to be colloquially called the
    'Silver Bullet'). However, there are some huge ramifications to using D2/D4
    in anything but small environments that you should be aware of. A
    non-inclusive list of issues would be:

    - All data stored on non-authoritative DC's is moved to pre-existing and is
    effectively 'lost' without manual intervention.
    - Running a D2 twice before the first one completes means that that data
    that was in pre-existing is now permanently lost.
    - While SYSVOL's are being restored, those DC's will not advertise and
    cannot be logged into by normal users.
    - While SYSVOL's are being restored, group policy will not function on those
    DC's
    - If you have more than 15 DC's, it is recommended that you do a staged
    restore - see article below
    - If you are using DFS with FRS in addition to SYSVOL on DC's, it's
    important to specifically D2/D4 the SYSVOl replica set - do not select the
    overall FRS system for D2/D4 as everything using FRS will restore (more on
    that in article below as well).
    - D2/D4 should be a last resort - we highly recommend using restored backups
    instead if at all possible or simply revolving the underlying issues leading
    you to this step.

    I highly recommend completely reviewing the following and pinging back here
    with any questions you have on it:
