Writing files to a domain controller running Windows Server 2003

I have a PostgresSQL database that once in a while archives a file on a remote machine. The user running the DB is called "anton". I was able to write the file to the remote machine by creating av local "anton" user on the target machne.

I would like to archive the file on another machine, and that machine is a domain controller. How do I create a local user on the domain controller? I tried to write the file by creating a domain user called "anton", but that didn't work. Any ideas?

    You cannot create a local user on a DC.

    You'll need to create a domain account for "anton" and then use that account "domain\anton" for the archiving username.
