I have a contractor who is trying to add his domain user account to his personal machine. This machine isn't on our domain. When you try and add his domain user account to the local machine it returns an error stating that the trust relationship between the pc and the domain has failed. Is there a way to add his domain user account to a non domain machine?

Short of joining the domain, not that I am aware of.

No. You can create a user account on the stand-alone machine or join it to the domain.

Agreed - if the machine isn't joined to the domain or doesn't have a trust between the domain it is joined to and the one in question, you cannot add the user.
