How do you grant access to network resources to the
LocalSystem (NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM) account?
When accessing the network, the LocalSystem account acts as the computer on the network:
The LocalSystem account is a predefined local account used by the service control manager.
...and acts as the computer on the network.
Or to say the same thing again: The LocalSystem account acts as the computer on the network:
When a service runs under the LocalSystem account on a computer that is a domain member, the service has whatever network access is granted to the computer account, or to any groups of which the computer account is a member.
How does one grant a "computer" access to a shared folder and files?
Computer accounts typically have few privileges and do not belong to groups.
So how would i grant a computer access to one of my shares; considering that "Everyone" already has access?
