Well, in my opinion, yes. By giving Administrator a uidNumber, you have, 
as far as Unix is concerned, turned it into a normal user that doesn't 
have the rights to do anything.

Is this on a DC ? if so, remove the uidNumber and it should start 
working again, if it is a domain member, again remove the uidNumber and 
add this line to smb.conf

username map = /etc/samba/samba_usermapping

Create the file '/etc/samba/samba_usermapping' with this content:

!root = SAMDOM\Administrator SAMDOM\administrator

Replace 'SAMDOM' with your workgroup

This will map 'Administrator' to the Unix 'root' user
