2003 .NET Server joining Samba Domain

Hello good people.

I am trying to join my multiboot laptop running XP/2003 .NET Server/Redhat EL to my Samba Domain.

I can join the domain fine on XP using the many HOWTO's online. Basically with XP i create an account locally with the same as as the user name on the samba PDC and give it admin rights. The rational here being that when I am logged into the domain, XP treats both accounts as the same and I can still install stuff and make changes on the system.

With 2003 .NET Server, its a whole new ball game. I can log into the domain Ok but I loose all admin priviledges and so I cannot install programs and some programs don't even run.

I created an account locally with the same name as that of the user on the samba server like I did with XP , but .NET does not associate the 2 accounts to be the same.

I am thinking its because of the difference in architecture on the .NET server. I am just curious if anyone out there has run into this at all?
Or anyone knows of a workaround for this?

Any help would be appreciated.

Is your 2003 server a domain controller? Starting with 2000 Server, local user accounts were disabled on domain controllers. MS made the change to plug a security hole in NT 4 (local admin on a DC could make themselves a domain admin). If you install it as a stand-alone server, however, local user accounts should still work.
