HPE StoreOnce 3540 CIFS share w/AD - add local users

I have created a CIFS share with AD authentication.  AD authentication is working great but I need to add a local user account as well.  We rename our local administrator account on our Windows computers.  I would like to be able to login as the local admin account and still access the share.

I can add local users as administrators of the storage server but they don't have access to the share.  I tried adding a user from the computer management application but it wouldn't let me do that either.  Then I tried adding the local admin account to the share permissions but that didn't work either.  How can you add local users in addition to the AD user authentication?

There are three type authentication available for the CIFS shares.

1. None (default) -> Any user from the network can access the shares.

2. User --> You can create specific users, in storeonce side and assign permission for the same users. From any client you can access the shares by using the username /password which is created on the storeonce. 

3. AD --> The shares can shared via Active Directory authentication (as us are aware of it). 

Now, if you enable any one of them, other 2 type of authentication will be disabled by default and you cannot use both AD and user at same time. (due to security reasons). 

If you want to use User mode, a single username/password is enoughh and from any windows client you can access the shares.
