Do you want the domain admin to be root of the linux member?

If so, make a username map e.g. /home/alex/smbmap:
!root = SAMBA\Administrator SAMBA\administrator SAMBA\\Administrator

(I've put the alternatives because I'm not sure if you need to escape
the \)

then put it in smb.conf:
username map = /home/alex/smbmap

I'm sure there must be an easier way but anyway. . .
