Sorry, I would suspect to also have the *right to connect*, if I have 
admin rights.

Could you please add a note to the documentation of

admin users
printer admin
valid users

that it is necessary to allow the users in 'admin users' and 'printer 
admin' connecting to the shares *through 'valid users'* before they 
really have the right to do their administrative job?
Then nobody can stumble over this anymore...

Thank you.
