Morning all,

To cut a long story short, (I'm doing another post in a minute with my 
actual problem), is there a way to get a DC to "forget" everything it 
knows about AD and force it replicate from a nominated "known good" DC?  
In a sense, resetting it but without trying to unjoin/rejoin the 
domain?  Delete sam.ldb or the contents of sam.ldb.d/ for example?  I've 
a situation where replication has gone a little awry I'd like to see if 
there's a quick way of just getting a DC to start again...

I've tried samba-tool drs replicate but that is throwing the error I'm 
trying to clear...
