SYSVOL is simply a folder which resides on each and every domain controller within the domain. It contains the domains public files that need to be accessed by clients and kept synchronised between domain controllers. The default location for the SYSVOL is C:\Windows\SYSVOL although it can be moved to another location during the promotion of a domain controller. It’s possible but not recommended to relocate the SYSVOL after DC promotion as there is potential for error. The SYSVOL folder can be accessed through its share \\domainname.com\sysvol or the local share name on the server \\servername\sysvol.
