What steps are you following ?
Have you read the Samba wiki ?

Yes, it can sometimes be confusing ;-)
If you follow the Samba wiki and don't understand something, please
ask, the only dumb question is the one you do not ask. It is also a two

don't understand it either, so we need to make it clearer on the wiki.

I asked because you posted this:

sudo net rpc rights grant 'domain\linuxproject' SeDiskOperatorPrivilege
-U domain\admin I constantly get:

This clearly shows a user called 'admin'
