Just got a little curious on the "non-admin" part.
I used the domain bultin Administrator account to join the domain. I  
know this account is member of both domain admin and enterprise admins.

BTW Does this account need to set Primary Group to Domain Admins for  
it to work with Samba?
MS States that you don't need to set the primary group if you don't  
use Macintosh or other POSIX clients... so maybe this one need to be  
set to Domain Admins? (It is Domain Users now..)
