OK, it seems to be saying that you do not have a 'tombstoneLifetime' 
attribute, try running this on the DC:

ldbsearch --cross-ncs -H ldap://julius -b 'CN=Directory 
NT,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=ssunit050,DC=local' -s base -U 

It should display the entire AD object, is 'tombstoneLifetime' amongst 
the output ?
