Sysvol domain name share empty after Windows 2008 Upgrade

Last Updated: 6/2/11

Domain controller sysvol domain share is empty after upgrade to windows server 2008 from server 2003. Not empty from Windows 7 or Windows 2008 machines, but folder is empty when viewed from Server 2003 or Windows XP.

Windows versions prior to Windows Vista (Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003) do not support nested junction points. Your server was probably a Windows NT or Windows 2000 server originally and has been upgraded to server 2003 and then server 2008.

Downoad this program

find the junction point for c:\windows\sysvol\sysvol\<domain name> that points to c:\winnt\sysvol\domain and delete it. Then recreate it with a new destination of c:\windows\sysvol\domain.
