happening ?' ;-)

This is happening on the machine connected to, not on the machine

Please post the smb.conf from 'server'
if there is a 'user.map' mentioned in smb.conf, please post this.
check if 'Administrator' is in /etc/passwd
Run 'getent passwd secretuser1'
Run 'getent passwd Administrator'

You should get output from the first, but nothing from the second.
