No, it is an artefact of a (I now think fixed) bug and it doesn't seem
to cause any problems ;-)
So, two questions:
1. I am correct, run the "samba-db-check-repl.sh" to check the
replication discussed within the Samba updating instructions mentioned
in my initial post?
2. Old (first) DC (the one running the FSMO roles) is still running
Samba v4.5.0 and will be updated as soon as I finish confirming I do not
have any replication problems. If this is the only complaint I am seeing
then most likely the DC's are replicating fine?
Okay, three questions, any other tests I need to run to confirm
replication is okay between the two DC's?
