    The External Trust to that Account is in the ForeignSecurityPrincipals
    Container within the root of the Domain NC. How ever the account runs under
    NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users.

    NT AUTHORITY is a system domain, which you can't do anything about.

    When I do an AD global search for "NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users",
    nothing comes up.

    Authenticated USers will not show up using tools like Active Directory USers and computers. It is a system group and its membership is determined dynamically. To permission a resource against the authenticated users Group OR any System Group you could use the Net LOCALGROUP command. Also in Windows 2000 you could use the Security tab and then click on the advanced tab and then type in the name of the system group you want to persmission against.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers!
