  • DCPromo - sysvol & netlogon share

    Greetings,
    When I run dcpromo on my windows 2003 R2 server and make it
    a server in my domain, shouldn't it create the sysvol & netlogon shares ?
    As well as populate the sysvol share ? I have tried this twice, and it does
    NOT create these shares, etc. First server in AD is a windows 2000 SP4 server.

    Am I missing something here ?

    thanks,
    Darryl

    when you run Dcpromo to create a Domain controller, it should create the netlogon and sysvol share. Also you need to prepare 2000 AD before adding a 2003 DC. Check the site of petri how to do that.

    However, if he become a member server, he isn't creating a sysvol and netlogon share.
    I'm not quite sure what you want to know, however, start looking into the eventviewer.

      Yes, I prepared the windows 2000 server (adprep /forestprep, etc) before
      adding the 2003 server to the AD.

      My question is: I successfully ran DCPROMO on the windows 2003 server, but it does NOT create the sysvol & netlogon shares. I have demoted the server and tried it again with the same result. Given this, how do I create these shares manually, or how do I get dcpromo to do it ?

      thanks,
      Darryl

        anything in the eventviewers?
        Do NOT create those shares manually.
