Hi,Rowland. I have do the testing again in another test env. this time I got the "administrator" in the linux domain member using “getent passwd".  maybe I made some mistake in previous test.  And after that I excute the command:
net rpc rights grant "NTBAOBEI\Domain Admins" SeDiskOperatorPrivilege -U "NTBAOBEI\administrator"
it showed:
Enter NTBAOBEI\administrator's password:
Successfully granted rights.

I didn't  set the unix primary group in smb.conf, so whatever I set the primary group in RSAT doesn't  affect anything, right?

I can manage the shares using administrator account in my windows client.  everything works OK. I think when we meet "SeDiskOperatorPrivilege can't be set", maybe no need to create a user map like the wiki below?


This is only  my personal opinion.

yours Adam

Congratulations, you just turned 'Administrator' into a normal user as
far as Unix is concerned. Also you have changed Administrators
primary group from Domain Users

There are no changes that I know of

If it works for, it is just that I wouldn't do it. ;-)
