This do not work as this option ist not supported with Samba 2.0.7. The
man page for smb.conf say, you have to use the option "domain admin
group" and "domain admin user", but it does not say how to use this

Has anyone samba 2.0.7 as PDC running with fully functional domain
admin group or user? Or does anyone know how to use the options "domain
admin group" or "domain admin group"?
