How to restore SYSVOL to single DC?

By CurtisInterruptus ·
This question is a continuation of a previous one: I currently have a single DC on a straight Win200 network. I have totally lost my SYSVOL share. I tried running netdiag /fix, to no avail (per previous suggestion). How can I gracefully restore the system share to SYSVOL with the least amount of risk?

Start the local domain controller computer in directory services restore mode. This will restore sysvol and active directory. See Windows help files "Restoring a domain controller" for additional info

This was a good piece of advice, however, in my case it won't fix the problem.

Having never worked in "Directory Services Restore Mode" on an AD server, I tried to find some details on how that is done. Does it restore the SYSVOL share automatically, or are there other steps to be taken? I can only find vague references to this process.

I also discovered this weekend that I do not have a good backup copy of the winnt/SYSVOL directory. I guess this will preclude me from doing the restore using your method. Any other ideas?
