hi Bruno,

If you apply the attached patch to samba/uptodateness.py, wherever that 
might be on your system, it might tell you which DC is confused. (no

 From a `| sort | uniq -c`, it looks like 5 repetitions of 10 DCs, like this:

       5 Missing dn CN=DC01,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,

       5 Missing dn CN=DC09,CN=Servers,CN=Lisboa,
       5 Missing dn CN=DC10,CN=Servers,CN=Angra,

5 repetitions because 5 partitions. Is there an 11th DC? Or one that was 
not removed completely and/or not smoothly upgraded?

I think I'd expect the max/median numbers to be lower here, unless the 
network is very busy at the time -- or, of course, a DC that is failing to
