Sysvol not updating

Sure enough, it came back with: listing one of our DCs.Clicking the link under Sys Vol gave me a box telling me that 2 GPOs were out of date with the baseline controller – one of which was the policy I was editing… ) Having given the DCS plenty of time to replicate (the next day in this case), I decided to investigate a little further.I can't believe Microsoft hasn't emphasized this more.This is a clear case where having advance notification would have better prepared customers. This is also the specific vulnerability that Microsoft has stated it will NOT fix for Windows Server 2003, which reaches end of life on July 14, 2015.Another good test is to run the propagation test, then run the propagation report, which will show if data is actually being replicated.Both of the propagation options are located as part of the Create Diagnostic Report action.on the machine in question – this didn’t help, but it did make me wonder if this was a AD replication issue.

After installation, launch the DFS Management tool, which will show the Domain System Volume group that contains the SYSVOL Share replicated folder (see screen shot below).There are two general methods for restoring Active Directory from backup media: nonauthoritative and authoritative.Nonauthoritative restore means that when a domain controller is restored from backup media, the restored data is updated through normal replication.As part of Microsoft's mob of releases yesterday during the regularly scheduled Patch Tuesday, one specific update was released to address a vulnerability in the way Group Policy functions.Per MS15-011, a remote code execution vulnerability exists in how Group Policy receives and applies connection data when a domain-joined system connects to a domain controller.

Per MS15-011, a remote code execution vulnerability exists in how Group Policy receives and applies connection data when a domain-joined system connects to a domain controller.

A successful attacker could take complete control of an affected system, thereby gaining access to install programs, view, change, or delete data, or could create new accounts with full user rights.
