PDC sysvol is dfsr and SDC in fsr

Hi Team,

Require help in fixing issue with the group policy updating. In our PDC the sysvol folder is sysvol_dfsr & in the SDC its sysvol. It seems like the PDC is in dfsr and SDC is in fsr. Global state is set to Eliminated. However; the replication seems to be working fine. SDC has more files inside sysvol compared to PDC. Group policy update is getting failed. How should I fix the issue? Thanks.

Hi,

To know the issue more clearly , would you please tell the recent changes in your domain.
What's the function level for your domain?
What's the version for both the 2 DCs?
Before the FRS migration, you checked the the DC status and the replication, right?

Best Regards,

Hi @FanFan-MSFT ,

As I am new to this organization, I came to know that the migration to Windows Server 2016 was performed on 2018. No other major changes has been made so far.

The functional level is 2016.

Windows Server 2016 with latest patch.

As, I didn't perform the same, I am not sure whether the person before me had checked the same.

The replication between the domain controllers is working fine without any issues. The DCDIAG report doesn't shows any issues apart from the system log issue which is related to group policy.

Regards,

Sujesh

The underlying folder on the DCs that were migrated (FRS to DFSR) will be Sysvol_DFSR but the share name for all is Sysvol

The folder name and share name for new DCs will be Sysvol

and the new policies created in the PDC is not getting replicated to the SDC.

Then you can try a non-authoritative synchronization
