[Samba] samba group rights problem (Domain Admins not working)

Check the GID of your Domain Admins group. It should end with "512" and
should be mapped to a UNIX group which have a GID of the same value. If it's
anything else, that can be a reason why your admin users actually don't have
administrator rights on the client machines.

Run the following command to see how your group mappings look like:

net groupmap list

You should see the number 512 at the end of the Domain Admins SID.

After you have verified, that your Domain Admins group has the appropriate
SID, check the UID and GID of an administrative user, for example:

id administrator

You should see "gid=512" in the output of the command.
