[Samba] Domain join issues - 4.9.0

Does anyone have experience of using ldbedit or similar, to remove the
duplicates below? (Is that even the right way for me to go?) Can I
perhaps query something using ldbsearch, to find the duplicates,
before using ldbedit?

I guess ldbedit does carry some level of risk with it, but I can't
seem to add any DCs to my domain at the moment which is unfortunate as
I had a hardware failure that I now can't recover from.

I note that this was last discussed on the list on 20 March 2018 at
03:14 (message ID

there was no conclusion to that thread other than a comment that
4.9.0pre1 seemed to resolve the issue. However, I am now using 4.9.2
on one of my DCs and on the DC that is being newly joined, and I am
still having the problem. (My two other DCs are still on 4.9.0)

For reference, this is the type of error I'm getting when joining my DC:
../lib/ldb/ldb_tdb/ldb_index.c:2352: duplicate attribute value in
CN=somePC,OU=someOU,OU=Computers,OU=mysite,DC=mydomain,DC=org for
