No tsbsam is different.
SURS is also concerned to admit mapping of trusted domains users to posix
tdbsam is only a backend that replaces the smbpasswd files for faster
lookup of data and better handling of users entries and also to enruch the
number customizable of per user parameters (all the per user parameters
that you find in user manager of winnt).

Well if you need something in TNG that is not on SAMBA HEAD this is not a
bad idea, only remember to use the "bind interface only = True" parameter.
