Thanks for that. I have done the above. The repadmin /syncall command worked fine with no errors syncing with its' replication partners. I did restart the FRS service and got the following message: "The File Replication Service is no longer preventing the computer KORSAKOFF from becoming a domain controller. The system volume has been successfully initialized and the Netlogon service has been notified that the system volume is now ready to be shared as SYSVOL. Type "net share" to check for the SYSVOL share." This doesn't sound bad at all. I will give the client logon a go and get back to you. Thanks again. Regards, Mino.
