	Did you check the Release Notes and WHATSNEW?  There are
a few changes between 3.0.21 and 3.0.24 that impacts the way that
groups are handled.

	In our setup, we add users in Domain Admins group and
that's enough to let them do administrative tasks on the clients,
we also did the 'net rpc rights' to the Domain Admins group,
considering that, we don't need 0-uid users.

	After 3.0.8 and 3.0.14 there are some changes in the
way groups are handled and also other important changes on how
Samba checks permissions and control access.

	Perhaps you could post your smb.conf and some logs so
we can try to help you find out what are the missing points.
