Sounds like you for some reason set your Administrator user in LDAP to 
have a uid of 0.  This was recommended at some old version of Samba with 
LDAP, maybe in the early 3.0.x layers.  Now you should have your 
Administrator to just any other user and assign priviledges with the 
delegation tools. 

So, in a direct answer, to regain your ownership 'look' just change the 
uid of your LDAP user named Administrator to anything other than 0.
