Thank you for taking the time to respond. Yes, I am quite aware. I inherited this mess and am trying to get it upgraded to the latest 4.7.x on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

The error is from Ubuntu  4.7.5 (thanks Louis for the instructions) trying to join 4.2. Do I need to step through 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, and 4.6 first?

That was where it was when I inherited this. I will try moving it to CN=Users. I was hoping this could replace the 4.2 PDC so I did not want to try read-only.
