You don't run pdbedit on a member server.  You have to use winbindd on
the member server.

Any machine connected to the same ldap backend as the PDC must also be
a DC, there is only one SID for the domain, and as Rowland kind of
hinted at, the local and domain sid need to be the same.  What wasn't
explicit is that this only happens on a DC.

I hope this clarifies things,
