SRV record is not registered in DNS

Indicates that a record from the netlogon.dns file is not registered in DNS.

Category: General
Name: Compare SRV DNS records with netlogon.dns file
Supported on: Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, and Windows Server 2019
Required permissions: When monitored locally and remotely, only domain user privilege is required. When monitored remotely, the target server must have WMI remote access enabled and the user must be a member of the Distributed COM Users group.

The Directory Analyzer agent checks each domain controller for service records. If a service record is missing, check the details for the alert. See Viewing alerts and alert history.

Stop and start the Netlogon service to force the domain controller to re-register the appropriate SRV records.

SYSVOL not shared

Indicates that the SYSVOL folder is not shared. File Replication Service requires this folder to be shared on domain controllers for replication to work correctly.

Category: Validations
Name: Is the domain controller folder SysVol shared
Supported on: Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, and Windows Server 2019
Required permissions: When monitored locally and remotely, only domain user privilege is required. When monitored remotely, the target server must have WMI remote access enabled and the user must be a member of the Distributed COM Users group.

The SYSVOL folder is shared on an NTFS volume on all the domain controllers in a particular domain and is used to deliver the policy and logon scripts to domain members. By default SYSVOL includes two shared folders, where the scripts folder is shared with the name NETLOGON:

The file replication service (FRS) replicates these folders among all domain controllers in the domain. If this folder is not shared, the FRS cannot replicate it.

The alert checks the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\Shares\ SYSVOL registry key. If the key is not present, the SYSVOL folder is not shared and cannot be replicated and this alert is triggered. The alert is removed when the SYSVOL folder status is set to be shared.
