I am trying to remove lingering objects with the command below:

repadmin /removelingeringobjects wmd-dc4 d8262b88-dde7-4a8e-9459-7f3aa44941a2 wmd-dc4.wmdlaw.local /advisory_mode

The error i get is the following (running command from 2008 server):

DsReplicaVerifyObjectsW() failed with status 8440 (0x20f8):
    The naming context specified for this replication operation is invalid.

I can ping from both ends and nslookup resolves both servers.
