You need to grant the rights to the builtin administrators group.  If
everything is set up properly (and this may depend a little on what
version you Samba you are running, and if you use winbind etc), when the
domain admins log in to Samba, it will see that they are in the domain
administrators group and add it to the builtin administrators group. 

You don't need to do this with 'net rpc' if you have access to the local
box - just use 'net sam rights'. 

I hope this helps,
