Sysvol vs Netlogon domain controller shares


The SYSVOL share contains W2K software distribution files, scripts, and ADM
templates as well as the Group Policy Template. An NT administrator would
consider Sysvol to be W2K’s version of NETLOGON. Replication in W2K is handled
by the File Replication Service to keep the SYSVOL share synched between W2K
domain controllers. In fact, W2K creates the NETLOGON share for down-level
clients, Win9x and Windows NT, under the SYSVOL structure.

SYSVOL is shared under %systemroot%\Sysvol\sysvol and
NETLOGON is shared under %systemroot%\Sysvol\sysvol\domain\Scripts.
