How to migrate SYSVOL replication from FRS to DFSR replication before you start your migration project

How to migrate SYSVOL replication from FRS to DFSR replication before you start your migration project

You should see FRS SYSVOL replication as old and it should no longer be used. With FRS SYSVOL replication all kind of problems could arise and in most case on a SBS this would be Journal Wrap errors. Those Journal wrap errors will prevent SYSVOL replication as soon as you introduce the new Domain Controller when you are migrating to a new operating system. The new DFSR SYSVOL replication has the ability to fix Journal Wrap errors automatically but if they occur before you have migrated to DFSR you must solve those issues first.
