Hi Steve,
For Domain Users you can try:

/usr/local/samba/bin/ldbsearch -a -H /usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb 
'(|(primaryGroupID=513)(memberOf=CN=Domain Users,CN=Users,DC=...))' dn

or using ldapsearch:
ldapsearch -h mys4dc -b 'DC=<my search base>' 
'(|(primaryGroupID=513)(memberOf=CN=Domain Users,CN=Users,DC=...))' dn

Similarly for Domain Computers (using primaryGroupID=515 filter and 
appropriate memberOf=CN=Domain Computers,CN=Users,DC=...).

You can probably tweak the filter a bit more to further constrain the 

These might be other, more elegant solutions though
