We have a customer that is looking to switch from using the Open Directory server for authentication to using the local database on their Kerio Connect server. We wanted to test out the conversion, would we be able to disable OD for a bit and add in a couple of users to the local database that exist on the Open Directory server. Then turn the OD server connection back on. Would there be any conflict with those users that would now be in the local database, but also still exist on the OD server.

In general, it is not good to have two users (one local and one from OD) at the same time on the server. It could lead to unpredictable behaviour during user login to the server or removing the unnecessary user account.

The easiest way is to deactivate (remove) the user and keep his mailbox and data on the server. Then import a that user account from OD or create a new local account with the same name.
