tdbsam uses a database stored in a 'tdb' file on the Samba server, 
ldapsam uses ldap to which can be on the Samba server or on another 
machine. You can use the ldap server for other things, such as a 
mailserver, squid etc, you can only use the tdbsam database with Samba.

OK, I said you couldn't provision a standalone server or a member 
server, well, you could well be correct, you can. I think your problem 
was that you deleted the private dir content, you may have been able to 
get it working if you did some further minor changes.

I have a 'provisioned' member server running in a VM, whilst it is 
nothing like the domain member from the Samba wiki, it seems to work.

If anybody else feels like trying this, please note, this isn't 
recommended and is definitely not to be used in production.

No idea, share names are not supposed to be case sensitive.
