[Samba] Samba 4--are multiple domain administrators possible?

I tried granting the user admin privileges via the Windows XP domain user
management console (after adding them to the "Domain Admins" group), but
this had no effect.

Do I have to do something permissions-wise on the Linux end?

Thank you,

Timothy Pearson
