Just reading this accidentally and finding out that "id Administrator" 
gives "id: Administrator: No such user" on all my machines, including 
DCs, and member servers where I explicitly mapped Administrator to root. 
Looking into ADUC, it turns out that Administrator has a uid: "0". Does 
that mean that I did this at some point (can't remember it). Any bad 
consequences, if I take NIS settings back for Administrator?
