Windows 10 unable to access SYSVOL and NETLOGON on 2008 R2 Domain Controllers

I found some help here:
Looks like the SMB security needs to be weakened to allow Windows 10 to access these shares.
Enable the following policy:
  • Computer -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Network Provider -> Hardened UNC Paths
You can either put the following in "Show Values":
  • \\*\NETLOGON    RequireMutualAuthentication=0,RequireIntegrity=0,RequirePrivacy=0
  • \\*\SYSVOL    RequireMutualAuthentication=0,RequireIntegrity=0,RequirePrivacy=0
Or put an entry for each DC:
  • \\DCNAME    RequireMutualAuthentication=0,RequireIntegrity=0,RequirePrivacy=0
