I am continuing to pursue this problem… 

I am assuming this is NOT a replication problem since the DN is not of the form 
nsuniqueid=text+DN and I am not finding any replication conflicts 
when I search for them “nsds5ReplConflict=*” on any servers.

Further info shows on one master I have:

dn: nsuniqueid=cf397a8e-b11f11e3-9e1cd834-1f7e47a1,
entryid: 463250

and on my other master (i have 2 MMR):

dn: nsuniqueid=cf397a8e-b11f11e3-9e1cd834-1f7e47a1,
entryid: 463250

My current plan is to upgrade all my servers to and see if this fixes things.
If it does not then I will export to LDIF and import one of my masters and then redo
my replicas (file export, import) and see if this fixes things.  I am expecting it will.

It will still be a mystery as to why this happened and what the “right” way out of this problem
would be.

I have an object which I am unable to operate on.  I try to modify it or delete it and I get err=1 (Operations Error).

it looks like:

[25/Mar/2014:13:13:00 -0400] conn=348 op=3 DEL dn="nsuniqueid=cf397a8e-b11f11e3-9e1cd834-1f7e47a1,CN=Community:ByOU:XXXX,ou=Groups,dc=XXX,dc=XXX"

Normally, the object is CN=Community:ByOU:XXXX,ou=Groups,dc=XXX,dc=XXX but when I search for
CN=Community:ByOU:XXXX,ou=Groups,dc=XXX,dc=XXX I get back the nsuniqueid as part of the DN (shown above).

I have dumped the LDIF and the nsuniqueid is NOT in the LDIF with this object.

I have restarted the server to no avail.

I have looked in bugzilla and can’t seem to find anything that looks like this problem.

I am confused and seeking advice.  I am somewhat worried I have objects I cannot modify or delete.  I have 2 of these now and I am not sure how they are getting into this state.

Any guidance is gratefully appreciated!
