When you add new DC to existing domain, you have issue that NETLOGON and SYSVOL shares not created.

1. Make sure you have good ping between servers by names.

2. Use net sheres

3. Run the following command on all domain controllers in the forest.

Net Stop NTFRS  (stop the file replication service)

Go Into Registry Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup

Change the BurFlags DWORD to = D4 on the Primary Domain Controller and change to D2 on all of the backup domain controllers.

Start the NTFRS service again by using Net Start NTFRS command

After I did this on all of the domain controllers it started working properly.
