yes it is expected, I don't remember ever having classicupgrade creating 
anything other than the NETLOGON and SYSVOL shares. It is not so hard to 
just copy back the few lines, and moreover the best practices advise to 
separate the file server and DC.

could you check with kinit, wbinfo and netstat that everything is 
runnign properly?
