Some time ago I was dealing with a eDirectory + IDM environment with
strange sync issues across replicas, problems with driver startups and
stability issues with ndsd process. The system consisted of 3 servers of
which 1 was very old and 1 brand new. The partitions are old as well,
originating from the oldest server.

I had to remove the older servers from the tree migrating their
partitions to the newest one, add them again and create partitions
again. Only after this procedure I had a stable system again. Before
that I tried a lot of different tricks to repair and sync but nothing
helped. Even the partition migrate + create did not work by itself, I
had to remove the servers from the tree to make them forget the faulty data.

Is there any easier way to do that? Such as a repair command equivalent
to re-creating a partition from a clean slate?
