su doesn't work since samba-installation


I've got here a redhat9-router... and there was a shell-user called "pablo"... he always used to log on to "router1" with his own password and then he was getting root-rights by typing "su" ....and the root-pwd...

...that's just normal...but since I activated his username as a sambauser, too with this command:
smbpasswd pablo
.... not a user can get root-rights per "su" anymore....

i added a user called "strohsack"... and he couldn't get root-rights per command "su" either....

....i tried this by a remote-ssh-login and a local (terminal., home) login as well..."su" doesn't work anymore for users.......

I already modified the account if taking him to group "wheel"....that didn't make a difference...
