No need that, because you can use something like this:
linux:~#mount -t smbfs -o rw,username=root,password=xxxxxxxxxxxx
// /mnt/windows_share
linux:~#mount -t smbfs
linux:~#// on /mnt/windows_share type smbfs (0)

The user: root is your samba domain admin and also that is added in
local user group: Administrators on windows machine!

If you want by this way can access windowsnt Admins Shares( C$, D$,  E$

linux:~#mount -t smbfs -o rw,username=root,password=xxxxxxxxxxxx
//$ /mnt/win_adminshare
