Try this command: (from root shell)
net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=root
This should enable the users in the "root" group to be considered as
domain admins by workstations, thus enabling the user "root" to be an
administrator of all windows workstations.
If you like, you can create a group like "ntadmins" and set that group to
be Domain Admins instead of "root", then you can add users to this group
(I suggest to add also root to this group) so that "normal" users (that do
not have the root password on your Linux server) can still manage the
