What did you set in Administrators Unix attributes ?

Never mind, whatever you added, remove them, then add this to smb.conf:

    username map = /etc/samba/user.map

Now create '/etc/samba/user.map', with this line:

!root = NTBAOBEI\Administrator NTBAOBEI\administrator
Administrator administrator

Restart Samba, Administrator will now get mapped to 'root'
You will be able to login to the Unix domain member as 'Administrator',
but from windows you will be able to manage the shares.
