Yes, mkpasswd will allow you to populate your '/etc/passwd' file.
mkgroup will do the same for your '/etc/group' file. Check out the
man page and/or the Cygwin User's Guide for more details.
If you would prefer to work only with a local user, use the -l or -L
flags for these commands. Otherwise, use the -d or -D flags. For the
domain at least, you probably want to use the -c flag. You will probably
also want to use the -p flag to specify your home directory (since it
points to a network path for your domain).
