Dear Experts:

I have installed debian squeeze configured to work as samba domain controller. To join the windows clients root user account has been used,  how to make other user account to do this job , in my example i have created an account support and added him to the ntadmins group please suggest me how to setup such that this user will be able to join the windows systems to the samba domain.

Thanks in advance.

The user has to have local administrative rights on the windows workstation to make changes to it?

Presumably the netadmins group is defined within your Debian Samba+PDC. The unassociated system does not have this association until it is joined into the  "samba+PDC" setup.
For a user to join an unassociated system into a Domain, the user must have local administrative rights.
