in samba2 you need to add the domain user to the local admin group.  You
can map a unix group to Domain Admins or Domain Users groups and add
that group to the local admins but you can't have more granularity than

if you don't mind adding the user to local admin on each machine that is
probably the cleanest solution.  

samba3 can handle arbitrary group mapping
