that i do not think.
i couldn't make it work but with the name "root".
however, the ldap-entry for "root" for samba-sake need only be of
sambaAccount (no posixAccount). [now writing this i do not think, that
this was the solution to my problem. however read on:]
i have put all the administrative accounts in a separate ldap-subtree,
which cannot (or only restricted) be read by the pam_ldap-operator.
Since the samba-"root"-account lives in this sub-tree, it cannot be
accessed for logging into a unix-machine and therefore the real "root"s
are kept local.
