I found out that in the sysvol\domain folder, everything is gone except the
folder DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory, which is itself empty. The
sysvol share itself is still there though.

This occurs on most DC's including the root which holds the fsmo roles (all
DC's are server 2003, fully functional and also host dns/dhcp) but on a few
of the DC it is not a problem. This problem started to happen when we added
more 2003 DC's in our environment...

Obviously somewhere something has gone wrong, and of course I cannot even
open group policies. When I try to open the gpmc snapin I get the error:

'failed to open the group policy object the system cannot find the path

So how do I repopulate the sysvol share again with the scripts, policies
folders etc?

Please help as this is urgent.
