Are you sure about that ?
'Administrator' is one of the 'Well Known SIDs' and always has the SID
S-1-5-domain-500 . I think you may find that when the domain was
created that 'Administrator' was renamed.

If it works on other Samba DC's, then I would compare a working DC with
your non working DC.

I would check if 'dcadmin' is 'Administrator' renamed (even if you
think it isn't), the RID '500' will confirm this, one way or another.
