Oh sure! I posted that info already, I think, but this is the error:

ERROR: no target object found for GUID component for msDS-NC-Replica-Locations in object CN=84bea0a7-82dd-4237-9296-030573700698,CN=Partitions,CN=Configuration,DC=samba,DC=company,DC=com - <GUID=81a27497-bdfb-4977-9874-675bbfba490f>;<RMD_ADDTIME=130405075610000000>;<RMD_CHANGETIME=130405075610000000>;<RMD_FLAGS=0>;<RMD_INVOCID=556b2cb4-e576-48e2-bb7c-7f62caee84fc>;<RMD_LOCAL_USN=4605>;<RMD_ORIGINATING_USN=3630>;<RMD_VERSION=0>;CN=NTDS Settings,CN=DC1,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=samba,DC=company,DC=com

In particular, I think it would be quite safe to clean up a dangling
forward link within the same partition in:
   - msDS-masteredBy
   - masteredBy
   - fSMORoleOwner
   - msDS-NC-Replica-Locations

So, good news :-) That's exactly what we're seeing here.

So, all in all, thanks for this valuable information, I'll just go ahead
and delete it!

That should be fine.  BTW, all the dbcheck tool is going to do is
delete the attribute value, I'm working on a patch to do that for the
one-way-link case.  I'll hold off on two-way links for now, as well as
the cross-partition case.
