      Yes, but you must give more detail. If you need special rights for this user on local machine you must include this user in a local group on that machine and user will logon with domain account and also will have the local rights depend of group where you added. The profile will be unique.

      Should the local logon username be the same as the network logon name? – To simplify use for the end user – yes, you can do this but the names do not have to be the same, they can be different. Local accounts are stored on the local computer; network accounts are stored on Domain Controllers.
      If you change the local account name to the network account name? – No, they will not share the same profile. All accounts are managed via the use of a unique SID (Similar idea to a unique social security number to identify people). Keep in mind that you can change permissions to allow users to use different profiles. Special access needs can also be accomplished by group membership management. For example, if you wanted the network account to have access to local resources on the computer, simply include that (network) account in the membership of a local group. I hope this helps you.

      Here’s a webpage that will answer all of your questions: http://www.infoworld.com/articles/op/xml/01/08/27/010827oplivingston.xml.

      This contains Microsoft’s Knowledge Base Article (Q184077), which is no longer available on MS’s site. One optionin this article specifically addresses how to make your Local User Account use your Domain Profile. It also shows how to make other accounts (for instance if you log in to multiple networks like when travelling) all use the same profile.

      This tip has saved me lots of time because I log in to multiple networks. No matter where I log in, I’ve got the same settings and program information from my “primary” profile.

      Hope this helps!

      All the previous comments where correct regarding the differences in profiles. Inshort, local and domain will always be different.
      As far as the logon cridentials go I prefer not to use the same password for local and domain accounts. The reason issimple: you don’t what users loggin on localy by mistake, and then compalaining that they can’t do thigs, like check email or use their programs and files.
      So I’d say, keep them different. This will prevent a lot of user comnfusions. Either they can logon to the proper profile or they can’t. Simple isn’t it?
