I have a FreeBSD box running Samba version 1.9.19-prealpha.

I have succesfully added a NT4 server to our domain but I can't figure out
how to give some users Domain Admin rights.

This is my "global" part of smb.conf...

------------------- smb.conf
        server string = SMB EXP1 STHLM01
        protocol = NT1
        mangle case = yes
        mangled names = yes
        default case = lower
        case sensitive = no
        preserve case = yes
        short preserve case = yes
        printing = bsd
        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        lpq cache time = 0
        os level = 65
        debug level = 1
        share modes = yes
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY
        netbios aliases = ns
        security = user
        workgroup = GRUPP
        domain controller = yes
        domain logons = yes
        domain master = yes
        local master = yes
        encrypt passwords = yes
        logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U
        logon script = logon.bat
        domain admin users = user1 user2 user3
;        domain guest users = astrom
        admin users = user1 user2 user3


As you can see I have tried the "domain admin users" and the regular "admin
users" but none of those works, I need to be able to give some users rights
to setup local printers and etc...

I have searched for an answer at
"" without luck...

I would be most gratefull for any hints or suggestions.

P.S Are there any time table for completing the RPC calls in samba ? D.S
