    Hello Honorable Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I just added a new 2003 domain controller to my 2000
    Active directory (which will be decomission eventually).
    The steps were as follows:
    Ran Adprep/Forestprep and /Domainprep from 2003 CD
    Made 2003 server secundary DNS
    Check errors - none
    Promoted 2003 to DC - no errors
    Transfer FSMO's through GUI to 2003
    Transfer Gllobal Catalog to 2003
    When I run Netdiag I get the error:
    Domain membership test........failed
    [Warning]the system volume has not been complitely
    replicated to the local machine. This machine is not
    working properly as DC.
    I do not see the Sysvol in the 2003 server.
    Please help, my job is on the line.
    Thanks a lot for you kind help.
    Have a great day!!!

  2. Hi Miguel,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    You can refer to the following steps to troubleshoot this issue.

    257338 Troubleshooting Missing SYSVOL and NETLOGON Shares on Windows 2000

    I would like to suggest that you format and reinstall the failed DC, being
    careful to follow the steps in Q216498 to remove references to it from
    other DCs in the domain/forest. Then repromote.

    You need to seize the FSMO roles owned by this DC on another DC.

    Using Ntdsutil.exe to Seize or Transfer FSMO Roles to a Domain Controller

    Have a nice day!
