SBS 2011 Missing Netlogon Share (Post Migration)

KB ID 0000809 Dtd 30/04/13

Problem

Whilst performing an upgrade from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011, I went on-site this morning to be told, "The new server does not have a NETLOGON share!". As a result the clients who had authenticated to the old server had successfully ran their logon scripts. But the clients who had authenticated to the new server had not.

Solution

1. On the original (SBS 2003) server > Start > Run > cmd {Enter} > Run the following command;

net stop ntfrs

stop ntfrs

2. On the original (SBS 2003) server > Start > Run > Regedit > Navigate to;

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Services > NtFrs > Parameters > Backup > Restore > Process at Startup

Netlogon Missing

Change the Burflags DWORD value to D4 (Hexadecimal).

3. Then start the ntfrs service again.

net start ntfrs

start ntfrs

4. Now go to the NEW (SBS 2011) server > Start > Run > cmd {Enter} > Run the following command;

net stop ntfrs

stop ntfrs

5. On the NEW (SBS 2011) server > Start > Run > Regedit > Navigate to;

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Services > NtFrs > Parameters > Backup > Restore > Process at Startup

SBS 2011 Netlogon Missing

Change the Burflags DWORD value to D2 (Hexadecimal).

6. Then start the ntfrs service again.

net start ntfrs

start ntfrs

7. Now wait approximately one cup of coffee.
