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.

I was curious as to the rationale for the question.  I agree though David.

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..
