[Samba] Samba users as local workstation admins?

After you set up those users on the PDC, you should be able to add
them to the Administrators group on the Windows workstation. I have
done that with a few users and it is working properly as far as I can
tell. The important thing is that you must add the DOMAIN user to the
Administrators group, not the current local user.

Hope this helps!
