Yes, my PDC is Samba4 so it's making things a bit wonky, and as I'm 
having Kerberos issues (I'm fairly certain with the W2K8R2 server) I'd 
like to get rid of the orphaned DC so I can concentrate on the 
Kerberos problem, then move on to my XenApp Server.

I'm going to start parsing through that stuff in a bit.  If I find 
anything useful I'll let you know.
