  • Can't add Network Service account to an ACL on a domain controller

    Hi

    I hope someone is able to help, it's been driving me NUTS for days now and extensive Googling hasn't quite yielded an answer!

    I need to add the NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE account to the ACL of a directory on our server - however, the account does not show up on any searches whatsoever. I understand from my searches, that although domain controllers do not have local accounts, they do still have the built-in 'special' accounts and that these should possibly be held within Active Directory under 'Foreign Security Principals' - but we only have two accounts listed in that OU - 'NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users' and 'NT AUTHORITY\INTERACTIVE'. Does anyone know if Network Service <b>should</b> be listed in there and if so how I'd go about getting it in there? And if not, how do I add the Network Service account in the ACL for a domain controller?

    Many thanks in advance
