I have succesfully installed and configured a Centos DS ldap server with a samba backend. i can join xp workstations to the samba domain, login to the xp workstation with user accounts in the LDAP directory, and browse network shares as well as map the user home dir.

the one issue i can not resolve is giving the domain admin account rights to administer the workstation. te domain admin group is mapped to the local admin group on the workstation, but users in the domain admin group do not get admin rights.

what am i missing here? i have searched the samba documentation as well as their mailing lists for about 5 days now to no avail.

i solved this issue on my own by creating an an account named administrator and adding it to the 'Domain admins' group. for some reason that i do not know, the samba root admin accont can not administer xp workstations that are part of the domain.
