      Starting test: VerifyEnterpriseReferences

         The following problems were found while verifying various important DN

         references.  Note, that  these problems can be reported because of

         latency in replication.  So follow up to resolve the following

         problems, only if the same problem is reported on all DCs for a given

         domain or if  the problem persists after replication has had

         reasonable time to replicate changes.

         ......................... DC01 failed test VerifyEnterpriseReferences

This probably occured from a lost DC that was never fully cleaned up or some similar hoursekeeping task that doesn't cause any type of error generation on day to day tasks.

To clean this up you will want to bring up ADSIEdit and browse to the object and right click on it and delete it.  Obviously you will always want to get a backup in the event of some unknown issue.
