If I don't say stupid things, the System admin is a local one and the Directory admin is on the OD level.
If you check dscl hierarchy, you'll be abble to verify it.
So theses are 2 different users and both are needed.
For new groups, I don't see them on my server, but I'm not admin of the server, just admin of the OD, so they are maybe on the local branch.
Hope it helps

Ok, thanks, I had forgoten the "show system records" trick.
For the guest user, I don't see it in dscl.
So I suppose it's not a user, just an "anonymous" authentication option in the sharing preferences.
It's a bit like "others" in the posix rights permissions : User, group, other. User and group are existing and named, other are not named, it's just anybody that is not the named user and not a member of the named group.
To keep things understandable, you should use an other name if you wish to configure a "guest user"
You can manage the "enable guest account" option from WGM if you select a computergroup, in the preferences pane / login / options.
Hope it helps

The reason I am asking is because Open Directory service is giving me a misconfiguration error between the server and the guest computer, and probably this is why users are taking so long to log in. If the guest computer is not neccessary I would like to see if I can delete it to find out of the error continues.

Where did you see this guest account ?
I mean, is it existing in any local files like /var/db/dslocal/nodes/Default/users on on an OD ldap entry ?
How many time do you need to login ?
What is this error message ?
Have you encrease the log level to see more deeply the problem ?
You eventually should try to run a tcpdump session to capture what exactly happend
