I see absolutely no reason to have 4000 users setup as
Administrators on their local machines.
However, if you wish to go down that route (Which I think is VERY
dangerous from a security perspective.) inside your Samba Configuration
file, you can setup a group to act as "Administrator" and just add all
of your users to that group.
If the OS you are hosting Samba on already has a "Global" Users
group that every account is automatically part of, simply add this Group
to the line detailing which groups/users are to have Administrator rights.
