It should be noted however that you don't want to delete absolutely all
the tdb files. There are a few notable exceptions in every domain style
installation such as secrets.tdb and more files such as
group_mapping.tdb and the passwd file (which I don't know the name of)
if you're using tdbsam. I would gather that the printer driver
assignments are in a tdb file too but I can't say for sure which of the
many printer-related looking files they are in.
