	It depends on how you configured your LDAP.

	After Samba 3.0.14 you can have a normal user account with
Domain Administrator powers, which includes adding machines to the
domain and other privileges, using 'net groupmap'.

	So you can an account as the LDAP administrator, another
account as your Samba Administrator and your regular root account.
It's up to you. ;)

	Kind regards,
