On this subject.. 
I asked Jim directly for some extra info, since im lots in the thread. 

As i understand he needs a "local" and Ad users. 

Maybe this is usefull 


When the user log in for the first time, a local user is created in /etc/passwd and primary group created in /etc/group, and a local home directory is created in /home. This is useful on roaming computers when the password is set up to be cached by for example libpam-ccreds or sssd to allow login without network connectivity using the password provided by a network authentication service like Kerberos or LDAP.

And some extra info on this
