Hi Jens,

1. It will be:
    /usr/bin/smbpasswd -x $1$
    /usr/sbin/userdel $1$

(Because it is a machine account, it will not have any files, but if you 
want to remove a normal user, you may want to delete all their files 
too. Then the second line would be /usr/sbin/userdel -r $1$)

2. On a Samba PDC, "Administrator" is just an alias for root. So if you 
change root's password, Administrator's password will be root's new 
password. So just do exactly what you would do to change any user's 
password. (smbpasswd & passwd)
