[Samba] Problem with not fixable dangling forward links




Hello List,

In preparation to update my samba ad-dc's running debian wheezy with backported samba 4.6.8 to 4.7.3. I'd like to fix two errors showing up in dbcheck whom hab been reported by dbckech --cross-ncs for an long time but without causing any issues so far.

I'm getting this error on my main dc

root@server:~# samba-tool dbcheck --cross-ncs

Running dbcheck with --fix does not fix the errors.

Looking into siteList CN=DEFAULTIPSITELINK,CN=IP,CN=Inter-Site Transports,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=samba-list,DC=loc with ADSI editor or the attribute tab in the "Sites and Services" Gui,

I see CN=Grafing,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=samba-list,DC=locbut not CN=Test,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=samba-list,DC=locin the siteList object.

On all the brach office ad-dc's there is only the error for CN=Grafing,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=samba-list,DC=loc but not for CN=Test.....

The site Grafing is existing and i n use with replication working proper the site Test existed only temporary.


Now if i us ldbedit -H CN=Configuration,DC=samba-list,DC=loc.ldb.bak (using an backup to be save) I see the Grafing site listed twice (I assume the one with GUID=596bd8ae9e8bc94eab99ad3c12e22132 is old) and also the Test site object in the siteList object.

Since these only show up in ldbedit can i use ldbedit to remove these entries?

From an other discussion here it seems this should work

ldbedit --cross-ncs -H CN=Configuration,DC=samba-list,DC=loc.ldb

But i get  thsi error

search failed - Unsupported critical extension 1.2.840.113556.1.4.1340

Can I remove these two entries on my main office dc first using?

ldbedit -H CN=Configuration,DC=samba-list,DC=loc.ldb
samba-tool dbcheck --reindex

And should i do the same on my branch dc's or force an full replication of the CN=Configuration,DC=samba-list,DC=loc.ldb branch for all these dc's?

Thanks in advance,
Achim~
