By connecting to the Domain accounts database, you are connected to the
local accounts database for Domain Controllers.  In an NT4 domain, you are
really using the PDC's accounts database for the domain.  The BDC's are just
read only copies of the same information.

What and where are you installing software that you need a local account on
the Domain Controller?  If you are creating an account for a service, then
pick a standard naming convention, create the account and make sure that
only a few people know the password and NO ONE ever uses it for logging in.

ok! so what do I do i I need to connect locally to the PDC? I need to create
a local user to manage a specific application! is there's a way or am I
doomed!!! I guess I could removed the dc from the domain and then reconnect
it... But it's not a wise idea I belive.

There is no local SAM on a Domain Controller, ergo no local users/groups.
You'll also note that you cannot "log on locally" to a DC like you can a
member server or workstation.

In user manager Windows nt 4.0

I need to access the "local user" from a Domain Member server. Now in user
manager on the server XXXX  I "Select Domain" I type the local machine's
name and it returns the following messager.

"(computername) is a member of domain XXXX. Focus will be set to domain

How can I connect to the local group and user?

Thank you.
