I would suggest you stop trying to use the 'samba_dsdb' backend, as far 
as I am aware, this is only used on an AD DC.

tdbsam or ldapsam, I would just use the Samba standalone server wiki 
page as a start, if I were you, this (though it doesn't show it) uses 
the tdbsam backend.

as a DC, nothing else will work!*

If you want a standalone server, see here: 

If you want a domain member, see here:
