it's some time that I had to touch our samba installation and may be
somewon can point me to the right direction.

We run a samba-3.6.9 PDC with ldap backend and windows 7 clients.
Everything for normal users is working fine (domain logon, roaming

But now we'd like to enable our systemadministartors to login to any
workstation with there domain user and install software or do other
administrative things.

I'v read a bit about domian accounts and mappings. But I'm not sure
where to add or change what.

The admins affected are also in a special posix group.

There are also "Domain Admins" and "Administrators" posix groups and net
groupmap entries.

Would be great if some one can help me.

	Thanks and regards . Götz
