Active Directory Domain Services Replication encountered the existence of objects in the following partition
that have been deleted from the local domain controllers (DCs) Active Directory Domain Services 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 Domain Services 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".
