[Samba] Help with active directory integration

I have samba installed and joined to a Windows domain as a member server. I would like windows admins to be able to manage shares.

I have followed the docs on samba.org and I am on the last step which is to run net rpc rights grant 'SAMDOM\Domain Admins' SeDiskOperatorPrivilege -U'SAMDOM\administrator'

but it fails with an access denied error.

So my question is:

1.What user account should I use instead of "administrator"?

2.Does this user need to be an admin on AD or on the local Linux server?

Thanks for the help!
