Administering User Rights and Privileges

With all versions of Samba earlier than 3.0.11 the only account on a Samba server that could manage users, groups, shares, printers, and such was the root account. This caused problems for some users and was a frequent source of scorn over the necessity to hand out the credentials for the most security-sensitive account on a UNIX/Linux system.

New to Samba version 3.0.11 is the ability to delegate administrative privileges as necessary to either a normal user or to groups of users.
