Hi,

We had a migration from 2003 to 2012 R2 that appeared to be going correctly. All the FSMO's etc were moved and as a check we ran the Active Directory Replicaton Status Tool and it showed everything was fine. It turned out though that after the migration was complete, that the 2012 R2 Server had not shared Sysvol. This was fixed with the "bur flags" reg edit and all was fine.

My question is, why did the Active Directory Replicaton Status Tool not pick up that the Sysvol on the 2012 R2 Server was not shared and why did it report that everything was working fine, when it was not? I thought that was what the ADRST was for?

Cheers

PT

Because ADRST monitors AD replication and not SYSVOL replication.

That likely means that the old environment had a problem. You may have corrupt policies in that case. Run GPOTOOL for a first impression.

Thanks for the info.

In that case, what tool should you use to monitor Sysvol replication?

Thanks

SCOM can do it. If you don't have/want it, migrate SYSVOL to DFSR, then run the report from the DFS management MMC once in a while.
