Hi,
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we've had one of our servers
that was fire-walled off from all but one of our other servers for some
time and could only sync to that one server.
A large number of OBITs built up during that time and now that issue
has been resolved for about a week, I'm left with a number of obits on
some servers (there is a mixture of OES2SP2 & NW6.5SP8 servers).

The Master replica is free of OBITS, all servers are communicating &
time is in sync (ndsrepair -E & ndsrepair -T show no errors). The RW
replics have varying numbers of OBITs still on them which are all Type =
0001 DEAD, Type = 0006 BACKLINK and Type = 00000005 NEW_RDN.
Most of the OBITs seem to be SLP objects.

It's the Type = 00000005 NEW_RDN enrty that I'm not sure how to tackle.
Here's an example:

(1) Found obituary for: EID: 0000bd09, DN: CN=service
ksysguardd_kde:__hamfp01v_hamcoll_sa_edu_au:3112.S U=SLP-HAM.OU=SLP_SCOPE.O=Hamilton.T=ROOT

Value CTS : 07-20-2011 15:46:08 R = 0004 E = 0096
Value MTS = 07-21-2011 10:32:19 R = 0003 E = 0086, Type =
0006 BACKLINK,
Flags = 0001
NOTIFIED

Backlink: Type = 00000005 NEW_RDN, RemoteID = ffffffff,
ServerID = 0000940c, CN=HAMILTON.O=Hamilton.T=ROOT

(2) Found obituary for: EID: 0000bd09, DN: CN=service
ksysguardd_kde:__hamfp01v_hamcoll_sa_edu_au:3112.S U=SLP-HAM.OU=SLP_SCOPE.O=Hamilton.T=ROOT

Value CTS : 07-20-2011 15:46:08 R = 0004 E = 0098
Value MTS = 07-21-2011 10:32:19 R = 0003 E = 0087, Type =
0006 BACKLINK,
Flags = 0001
NOTIFIED

Backlink: Type = 00000005 NEW_RDN, RemoteID = ffffffff,
ServerID = 0000a4ac, CN=HAMIDM01V.O=Hamilton.T=ROOT

(3) Found obituary for: EID: 0000bd09, DN: CN=service
ksysguardd_kde:__hamfp01v_hamcoll_sa_edu_au:3112.S U=SLP-HAM.OU=SLP_SCOPE.O=Hamilton.T=ROOT

Value CTS : 07-20-2011 15:46:08 R = 0004 E = 0097
Value MTS = 07-21-2011 10:32:19 R = 0003 E = 0088, Type =
0006 BACKLINK,
Flags = 0001
NOTIFIED

Backlink: Type = 00000005 NEW_RDN, RemoteID = ffffffff,
ServerID = 00009407,
CN=ADMIN-SERVER.O=Hamilton.T=ROOT

(4) Found obituary for: EID: 0000bd09, DN: CN=service
ksysguardd_kde:__hamfp01v_hamcoll_sa_edu_au:3112.S U=SLP-HAM.OU=SLP_SCOPE.O=Hamilton.T=ROOT

Value CTS : 07-29-2011 00:18:33 R = 0001 E = 0001
Value MTS = 07-29-2011 00:18:58 R = 0004 E = 0003, Type =
0001 DEAD,
Flags = 0004
PURGEABLE

Should I try timestamping them in iMonitor?

Cheers,
Ian
