If the company is too big and nobody is granting that permission.
Then it is saying more about the company ( or you, try not to be offending here) then samba. 
I'll blaim the company..  ;-)

Yes, but that a company policy problem and not a samba problem. 
Also you must understand that in my optinion this is normal a procedure.
Because else it would be very easy to put a compromizing machine in to the domain. 

So my best advice, ask for the delegation as shown in the links, if you dont get these and you dont have any other admin rights.
Then you are (a 6 letter word here... )..
