It looks like you've got ADMINISTRATOR set up with public-key auth.  The
easiest thing would be to copy ADMINISTRATOR's .ssh/id*  (ie the key files) to
root's $HOME/.ssh/.  That way root is using an authorized ssh key that
administrator-Q0ErXNX1RuYmaKRe3I/nfg at already has configured to allow.

Although I may have mis-read what the problem is...
