Hi Alex, 

Just because I gave up doesn't mean there isn't a way. Does your partitioning 
of local/domain users allow a domain user to run a service on a machine? I was 
trying to run an iPython notebook server as my regular user/domain account via 
systemd. Much of the data that the service needed access to resided on a 
multi-Terabyte NFS share, hence the desire to make it work with my domain 
account. IIRC, systemd was the thing choking on the domain user. 

Do you just manually create a local user with the same attributes as the domain 
user? (and in the case of the above use NFS with sec=host)?
