I have win2k machine with a user that has ADMIN rights to the win2k
machine but when he logs into the Samba PDC he is getting knocked down
to user level permissions on the win2k machine.  Is there a way to have
the win2k users maintain admin rights on there workstations without
giving them admin rights on the Samba shares?


Here is my smb.conf file:

#       /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf

        workgroup = MSWKLAW.COM
        log file = /var/log/samba.log
        status = yes
        wins server =
        logon script = default.bat
        guest account = ntguest
        security = user
        os level = 65
        domain logons = yes
        encrypt passwords = yes
        hide files = /Maildir/
        add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 1003 -s
/bin/false -M %u
        domain admin group = root @adm
        nt acl support = no
        admin users = awright

        guest ok = yes
        guest account = ntguest
        read only = no
        create mask = 0700
        directory mask = 0700
        writable = yes
        locking = no
        dont descend = Maildir

        comment = for Windows domain logons
        path = /usr/local/samba/netlogon
        guest ok = yes
        guest account = ntguest
        writeable = no
