    Hi,

    Unfortunately , it's not possible to create local user through Group Policy Preference due a security risk :

    You should create it manually. You can use the power-shell command New-LocalUser , if you have many computer where this account should be created.

    However , you can use Group Policy Preference to add this local user to local Administrators group:
