May be it my poor english, but I mean that I don't want to allow login
user into domain and don't want allow him create profile and use
home directory, but I want allow this local autentificates in PDC.
May be I need run for him some script for logout user?
I repeat, this user only needit for determine, that this user in domain
is correct and can access to other read only resources on all network
(ofcourse, if that resources on PC, that joined into domain).
