Lingering Objects

By nelesh.naidoo ·
I need some help please.

We have a 2003 forest with various domains. An admin from another domain sent a mail with regard to a lingering object causing problems with replication. He's receiving event 1988 (see event below).

? Shouldn't he run a rapadmin /removelingeringobjects on the DC that is generating the error?
? If I do a search in aduc for SCMB0010932 on all my dc's I find the computer account.
? How should I go about rectifying this error?

Event Type: Error
Event Source: NTDS Replication
Event Category: Replication
Event I 1988
Date: 10/31/2007
Time: 7:54:47 AM
Computer: BRNDRPVSEC01
Active Directory Replication encountered the existence of objects in the following partition that have been deleted from the local domain controllers (DCs) Active Directory database. Not all direct or transitive replication partners replicated in the deletion before the tombstone lifetime number of days passed. Objects that have been deleted and garbage collected from an Active Directory partition but still exist in the writable partitions of other DCs in the same domain, or read-only partitions of global catalog servers in other domains in the forest are known as "lingering objects".

This event is being logged because the source DC contains a lingering object which does not exist on the local DCs Active Directory database. This replication attempt has been blocked.

The best solution to this problem is to identify and remove all lingering objects in the forest.
