I'm having two DC in my domain. When I run
   # samba-tool dbcheck
I receive 27 errors on the first one and 49 on the second one. All 
errors are like this one:
ERROR: target DN is deleted for member in object CN=Medical 
Office,CN=Users,DC=muc,DC=medizinische-genetik,DC=de - 
Target GUID points at deleted DN 

When I run
   # samba-tool dbcheck --cross-ncs
I receive only on my first DC 102 errors of this kind:
Not fixing nTSecurityDescriptor on 

My questions:

1.) Why do I have a different ammount of errors on each server. Are this 
replication errors?

2.) Does Samba has to be running when doing the "--fix"? Or has it to be 
repaired offline on each DC? And is this the same when running with 

3.) What had caused this two kind of errors? The user mentioned in the 
first message is one, that has been deleted during the past month.

This dbcheck I run after upgrading from 4.0.9 to 4.1.0 (I haven't run it 
before the upgrade).
