[Samba] Problem Logging in to Samba PDC

Ok, recently upgraded from Samba 2.2.3a to 2.999+3.0.alpha20-2.

After successfully joining the Win2k SP3 machine to the Samba PDC, I'm
unable to log in.  The error I get is the following:

"The system cannot log you on to this domain because the system's
computer account in its primary domain is missing or the password on
that account is incorrect"

According to the docs, these are the steps I need to take.

useradd -g 100 -d /dev/null -c "irvpc" -s /bin/false irvpc$

passwd -l irvpc$

smbpasswd -a -m irvpc

So, before the upgrade, I could look at smbpasswd to see if the machine
accounts where created successfully and if there were any duplicates.
However, with this new version, all machine accounts are stored in a
.tdb format.  How can one go about looking at the contents of the .tdb
files and which file should I be looking at?

Sorry, I don't find any information on the .tdb files in the docs.
Maybe someone can point me to some.

Really appreciate any help...Thanks!
