file security at all levels (local files/server based files).
device security at all levels (local/server).
password security at local level

Seems to me that you should fix whatever isn't properly configured to
solve your problem instead.

from command line on samba server, what do you get when you run...

net groupmap list # ?
testparm -s # any errors?
pdbedit -Lv Administrator # ?
