I have an interesting problem... I need the local SYSTEM account on one server to access a specific network share on another server. Due to other reasons I can't use a regular domain account for the time being.
Using "psexec -s" I have played around with connecting to network shares under the local SYSTEM account with "net use". Since I am in a domain, I can simply add the DOMAIN\COMPUTER$ account to the share and NTFS permissions.
That seems to work fine everywhere except for one server. If I add "Everyone" to the share and NTFS, then that one server can connect. I noticed in the NTFS permissions (Security tab) that all the other servers I add have a computer icon on the left. This one server has a user icon. When adding the account I specifically said to only search for computers in the domain. And if I don't select computers, it never finds the account.
Basically, it seems the server account in the domain is different/corrupt in some way. Has anyone come across this? I would try re-adding the server, but it's critical and needs to be up as much as possible. I'm hoping there is a solution within Active Directory or something...
