[Samba] Can tdbtool be installed on it's own?

Yeah, had a rant there. Sorry about that.

In a nutshell, it appears that samba is refusing connections to a few of my domain users every couple of weeks and the only way to grant them access again is to get them to reboot their PC's.

The standard logs don't seem to catch this event so offer no clue as to why this happening.

After reading a load of samba documentation I discovered that some of the tdb files may hold the answer and since Netgear seem to have pulled the tdbtool app I can't view these files to check.

Any ideas?

Not sure what you're trying to do here. Netgear ReadyNAS
tech support is *extremely* clueful about Samba (I worked
with their engineering @ VA Linux).

Can you explain what you're trying to do with tdbtool ?
