So I think that my original post of upgrading samba pdc is related to
secrets.tdb.  I did not copy from the old to the new.  So...  I still have
the secrets.tdb from the original 2.2 pdc - how would I apply that to the
new 3.0.0 PDC?  Any help much appreciated.  And, if it didn't help, how
would I revert?

I ran into this same problem. There is one more thing you need to do:

net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=ntadmin
