[Samba] Making users local administrators

I have Samba 4 (lastest version, I think) set up for Active Driectory. 
Everything is working just, using Microsoft's Group Policy Editor to manage 
stuff. Except one thing:

For reasons you don't want to get me started on, I need all users to have 
local administrative priviliges on any computer on the domain. This is 
supposed to be a simple, straightforward thing. Google has led me to half a 
dozen different ways to do this through group policies. And none of them 
work. I can set any other kind of group policy I want, power saving 
settings, screen saver settings, various security settings in IE, and the 
new settings show up with a gpupdate /force, but I cannot figure out how to 
add someone to the local administrators group. Can somebody point me to a 
really remedial howto? Something like "group policies for complete idiots"
