[Samba] Making users local administrators

Well, if you must allow them to have this access, I would make it through a separate account. There is no good reason to have users logging in daily as Administrator anymore. 

Trouble with mailing lists: you will get an opinion on what you're doing, want it or not.

I have no choice. There's too much stuff out of my control that requires 
the daily user have admin rights locally.

Plus, we've beeing doing it this way for 15 years, and have never had any 
serious issues.

In our case, they'd be 100% safer because we'd be out of business. If I 
don't keep things working, my replacement will.
