SYSVOL and NETLOGON Shares Missing on New DC

After a bit of searching around I was able to figure out the reason why. This newly promoted domain controller was running on Server 2019 so I thought it was a bit odd that it was behaving this way. It turns out the fix works from 2012 R2 and newer.

With that being said lets go over the steps to resolve the missing Sysvol and Netlogon shares for your DC.

  • Login to your Domain Controller that’s having the issue
  • Open Regedit
  • Browse to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters
  • Set SysVolReady from 0 to 1

Once you’ve set the above registry key, the SYSVOL folder should be created so you can type in \\DC\Sysvol and it should work. However, I noticed that this specific registry key didn’t fix my NETLOGON folder so in order to fix that issue here is what I did:

1)While logged in to my domain controller

2)Navigate to:

3)Create a new folder and name it:

4)Restart the netlogon service:

or reboot the machine
