There is no windows user called 'Admin', there is one called
'Administrator', if it is the later, then it is automatically mapped to
'root' on a DC, but, on anything else, you need to map it in smb.conf
with a user.map setting.
If it is a separate user called 'Admin', then this is treated as just
another user and must exist in Samba and Unix on a standalone server.

Quite a lot has changed between 3.4 and now.
