Administrator is a builtin on a Windows system.
There is no domain equivalent, so you probably shouldn't
try to put one there.
The Administrators group is also a built-in local group on
windows with no Domain equivalent, However:
Description: A built-in group. After the initial installation of the
operating system, the only member of the group is the Administrator
account. When a computer joins a domain, the Domain Admins group is
added to the Administrators group. When a server becomes a domain
controller, the Enterprise Admins group also is added to the
So I think, what you are looking for is the Domain Admins group --- to
domain admin access, which "_should_" [not always automatic, in my
have that put in each Administrators group on each machine. From the
above text from a "Well-known SIDs" page on MS's website, the Domain Admins
groups should automatically be added to the Administrators group on a
local machine when it joins a domain, but I have had to make that change
manually in most cases.
You can rename your linux root account to 'Administrator' if you are
really inclined to do so, but I'd suggest rename Administrator account on
client machines to 'root' if you want the names to be consistent.
If you create a 'Administrator' account in Samba, you'd have to create
it as a Domain user -- and that will be different than the built-in
Administrator (they'll have different GUIDS).
