HI Andrew,

No. Unfortunately not. Actually forcing the replication thinks 
everything is in order.
# samba-tool drs replicate --local backup primary dc=ad,dc=domain,dc=de
Partition[dc=ad,dc=domain,dc=de] objects[0] linked_values[0]
Incremental replication of 0 objects and 0 links from primary to 
tdb:///var/lib/samba/private/sam.ldb was successful.

Yes I just checked. password updates are replicated.

Well, the ldbmodify usedc was:
ldbmodify -v -H 'DC=AD,DC=DOMAIN,DC=DE.ldb' < 

Does this count as modifying the files directly?
