DOH! no it should be search and it now says so on the DC wikipage.

Perhaps I should have been a little more precise, you shouldn't use
versions earlier than 4.6.0 with versions >= 4.6.0 on Unix domain
members, if you also set 'idmap config <DOMAIN> : unix_primary_group =
yes' on the >= 4.6.0 machines.

You may have to remove it with ldbdelete, try an ldbsearch on the DC
first, if you can find it, ldbdelete should be able to delete it.
