Sysvol folders \scripts and \polices deleted...

    Hi,

    On one of our servers the sysvol\sysvol\<domainname>\policies and
    ..scripts folders are deleted. This was probably due to replication
    problems with FRS and it has been replicated 'the wrong way'.

    How can I have the system autocreate these folders again as they are
    after having installed a new system?

    Thanks a lot for comments and tips...

    cheers

  2. Replicate the wrong way? Sysvol is part of the system state therefore if you
    perform a system state restore it will return the missing item.

    If you mean NTBackup's system state, I'm afraid it is not available.
    This is a brand new server and we hadn't taken a backup yet due to that
    were no user data yet (but we had worked quite a bit on a good logon
    script...).

    Does windows store copies of these folders elsewhere?

    If not, I have to ask again: How do I recreate these folders and what
    do i do to recreate the default domain policy...?

    Thanks again

  4. No, the folder is relicated to other DC's. It is created during the DC Promo
    process so if you loose the folder you either run DC promo again or restore.

    Johan Strange skreiv:
    OK.

    Can you please provide the correct command line parameters for dcpromo
    to achieve the recreation of the sysvol folders and a new corresponding
    default domain policy..?

    I don't hope this will affect the user accounts already created...?

    Thanks a lot ;-)

  6. Can you confirm this. How many DCs do you have, does the DC with the issues
    hold the FSMO roles. What have you done so far to solve this.

    I have two domain controllers. DC1 and DC2. GC is hosted on both. I
    denoted DC1, rebooted and promoted it again. As you suggested.

    The win\sysvol\sysvol\mydomain folder is there with only a
    'do_not_remove_NTFrs_preinstall_directory folder in it. Still no
    'Policies' and the shared 'Scripts' folder.

    I suspect that the problem persists because the structure was replicated
    from DC2 again.

    Isn't it a way that I can kick an autocreation of the mydomain\Policies
    and the share mydomain\Scripts?

    Do I need to do anything with DC2 to no mess anything up until I have
    recreated policies and logon scripts on DC1?

    Thanks again ;-)
