You seem to have two errors, the first:

Missing target while attempting to apply records: Deleted target CN=NTDS 
GUID 193acd86-264a-462a-87aa-a4948f35c908 linked from 

Is referring to a deleted object and as such isn't really a problem, but 
cleaning up deleted objects would remove this.

The second is where it falls apart:

Missing parent while attempting to apply records: No parent with GUID 
cdee5b31-365d-4c8f-9368-4115b6307a19 found for object remotely known as 
CN=Domain Users,OU=Grups,DC=DOMAIN-TEST,DC=com
Failed to commit objects: WERR_DS_DRA_MISSING_PARENT

First, is it actually 'OU=Grups' ? or is it 'OU=Groups' ? (I had to 
stitch your output together, but I am sure the 'o' wasn't there)

Second, does the GUID 'cdee5b31-365d-4c8f-9368-4115b6307a19' exist in AD 
or has it been deleted ?

Third, why move 'Domain Users' from 'CN=Users,DC=DOMAIN-TEST,DC=COM' ?
