JSI Tip 6543. How do I troubleshoot missing SYSVOL and NETLOGON shares on Windows domain controllers?

Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 257338 contains the following summary:

The File Replication Service (FRS) is a multi-threaded, multi-master replication engine that replaces the LMREPL service in Microsoft Windows NT 3.x and 4.0. Microsoft Windows 2000 domain controllers and servers use FRS to replicate system policy and login scripts for Windows 2000 and down-level clients.

FRS can also replicate content between Windows 2000 servers hosting the same fault-tolerant DFS roots or child node replicas.

This article describes troubleshooting steps to use on Windows 2000 domain controllers that are missing netlogon and sysvol shares.
