I am setting up a test bed for Samba PDC + LDAP.  I used the 3.0alpha21 
rpm for RH8 from samba.org. The setup is working.  Win9x client can 
login no problem.  

I was wondering how I should setup an "Administrator" account for the
domain.  Right now, my plan is to have samba authenticate only to the
ldap backend ("passdb backend = ldapsam" only).  Does  the administrator
only need write access to the ldap tree or it also need to be root on
the machine (uidnumber or gidnumber 0) ? What should I put in the rid 
and primaryGroupID field ?  At the very least, I'd like to be able to
add machine accounts to the domain with this account.

Thanks for your input !
