As am I.  I have added newer Samba DCs and want to kick off the old
orignal DC.  But I cannot as it still holds those two mystery roles.
All normal FSMO roles have been transfered to another DC

I believe it relates to the use of 'internal' DNS, I have found other
messages relating to that.  But never a solution.

I guess I will try the forcibly-remove VBS.
