The host machine you are trying to view the local users and groups what O/S it is running? it is XP/Vista Home? - if that's the case you won't be able to manage local users through that managment console.

If it's not running those O/S

Try adding the local users and groups manually through mmc

start > run > mmc

add

Local Users & groups.

Local Users and Computers don't exist on Domain Controllers.
Instead, go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Active Directory Users and Computers.

Yep but that's not local to the machine, that's for the domain.
You'll notice the full path is ADUC, Domain, Users.
It's not ADUC, Users.
