[Samba] howto cache 'root' password for net commands?

I have a minorly complicated root password that is hard to type correctly,
quickly....yet samba 'seems' to be encouraging me to create a
simple one in order to do managagement on the server via 'net'....
I don't like to type the password more than once, the more times I type it,
the more times it can be either monitored, or seen, or whatever...
So am I doing something incorrectly in my server management -- because
one has to run as 'root' to manage things with the net command, so you've
already typed in the password -- but then it asks you to type in the password
Even windows save credentials under your login....so why is 'net' re-asking
me root's password, when it knows I am running as root? (when I don't, it
says most things won't work (and they don't)....)...so how to cache?
Or is there some setting I've munged to create this problem for myself?
(certainly not inconceivable... ;-) )...
