Why do you need to do this?

If the computer is a member of the domain, then the AD Group "Domain Users" is automatically a member of the local "Users" group.

You can add a domain account to a local computer group the same way you would add a domain user to a domain group.

I think he wants to prestage a domain account as a user. and AFAIK this is not possible.

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

Not sure anyone here really understands the question..
Myself included..
But you can use the local accounts area to add domain users to a PC,
If you wanted to make them local admins of a PC that is on a domain, but don't want them to be domain admins.. If that's what you are asking than yes..

If what you are asking is something different, i believe that everyone above me has filled in that info already..
