new 2019 Windows AD server with an error running DCDIAG

I have to DC's now, one a 2012R2 (SVR1) and 2019 DC (SVR2). I've added a 3rd one called SVR2A. I am removing AD services from SVR1 because we are going to move it to a 2019 server down the road.

DCDIAG fails just on this one. Passes on everything else. So SVR2a also does not have the NetLogon folders because of this.

Testing server: Default-First-Site-Name\SVR2A

  Starting test: Advertising

     Warning: DsGetDcName returned information for

     \\SVR1.mydomain.ca, when we were trying to reach SVR2A.

     SERVER IS NOT RESPONDING or IS NOT CONSIDERED SUITABLE.

     ......................... SVR2A failed test Advertising

Any idea on how to fix this?

    Please run;

    Dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:%computername% >C:\dcdiag.log
    repadmin /showrepl >C:\repl.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc1.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc2.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc3.txt

    then put unzipped text files up on OneDrive and share a link.

    Still need the other three files. You can work through this one for the missing netlogon, sysvol shares.

    Hi,

    Check the required ports for sysvol replication is already opened between new domain controller and its replication partner. If it's not the case and you still have the same issue, you should launch non-authoritative restore for sysvol replication:

    force-authoritative-non-authoritative-synchronization
