You mean that you want to make samba server authenticate users stored
at local tdb file?

To specify "SERVERNAME\Username" explicitly, an AD member server can 
authenticate its local users.

If you speficy simply "Username", Samba 3.4.0 or later will authenticate
as a local user for default, Samba 3.3.X or before will authenticate
as an AD user. See "map untrusted to domain" parameter for the detail.
