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.

I don't think this is going to work Louis :-)
The OP wants to use the DC for everything, as a fileserver and
authentication etc. So if he was to use what you are suggesting, when AD
user 'fred' first logs into the DC, an attempt to create a local user
called 'fred' would be attempted and I don't think it would happen. I
think it would error out with something like 'user already exists'.
