I can't seem to get the repadmin /removelingeringobjects syntax correctly. My best guess is:

repadmin /removelingeringobjects SVR04.MyDomain.local 8137fbab-e362-401b-9816-ffec4ac17a93 CN=Reset Password\0ACNF:0f510150-9d77-488b-a11e-07295ec5e494,CN=Roles,CN=RBAC,CN=MyDomain,CN=M
icrosoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=MyDomain,DC=local  /advisory_mode

I get the message Invalid arguments.  I also tried a naming context of CN=Configuration,DC=MyDomain,DC=local (I tried a lot of things). I get Invalid naming context.

I have 2 DCs, SVR03 and SVR04. Both are 2012 R2. In SVR03's event log I see event ID 1988 with details:

Source domain controller:
93148ff4-d67e-4415-ae06-619a606cfb02._msdcs.MyDomain
Object:
CN=Reset Password\0ACNF:0f510150-9d77-488b-a11e-07295ec5e494,CN=Roles,CN=RBAC,CN=MyDomain,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=MyDomain,DC=local
Object GUID:
0f510150-9d77-488b-a11e-07295ec5e494

Running repadmin /showrepl SVR03 on SVR03 and verifying in DNS, I determined that SVR03's GUID is 8137fbab-e362-401b-9816-ffec4ac17a93. I ran showrepl SVR04 on SVR03 also. Below are the outputs.

Can anyone tell me how to enter this command correctly?

Thanks
