Use 'net sam' to add the user in question to the BUILTIN\Administrators
group on your Samba host.  The user rights assignments are stored
in account_pol.tdb IIRC (but that may have changed).  It's been
several years since I look at that code and I remember Michael Adam
making some interface changes.  But I think the storage location on
smbpasswd and tdbsam installations is the same.
