Why is Sysvol shared? Sysvol is an important component of Active Directory. The Sysvol folder is shared on an NTFS volume on all the domain controllers in a particular domain. Sysvol is used to deliver the policy and logon scripts to domain members. Note – We can go ahead and change these default locations.
Why is Sysvol important? The importance of SYSVOL folder: it holds the GPT, and whenever an administrator makes any changes to any of the policies, those changes will be committed to the associated GUID name folder and then they will be replicated to all Domain controllers.
What is the Active Directory database called? The Active Directory data store
The AD database is stored in the NTDS. DIT file located in the NTDS folder of the system root, usually C:Windows. AD uses a concept known as multimaster replication to ensure that the data store is consistent on all DCs.
How does Sysvol replication work? When any information is changed under the Sysvol on one domain controller, it triggers replication of the Sysvol to all other domain controllers. The Sysvol is replicated using the File Replication System (FRS). FRS does not have a schedule associated with it. FRS uses state-based replication instead.
