Hi Samba User Group

Maybe that's a stupid question, however i have a severe problem with that.

I'm running samba 2.0.4b on suse linux 6.1 and windows nt4 sp4, german

I need the domain admin to be a member of the local admin group,
If I log into the local domain as admin I cannot add the domain admin to the
local admin group, because of miising privledges in the domain.
If I log into the domain it's the same, because of missing privledges on the
local workstation.

User Administrator is member of the linux group root. In smb.conf I've set
domain admin group = root.

I would appreciate any hints for solving my problem#
