Local System and Local Service account on DC

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Nathan Weldon, Sep 21, 2005.

  1. Just a general question about the local system and service account in
    windows 2003 server. Since this machine is a domain controller the local
    administrator account no longeer exists. Does this mean that when a service
    uses the local system account to login, it is using the domain
    administrators credentials?

  2. No. Domain admins have full access to most networked
    resources. The system account has none.

  3. Okay, so should Domain Controllers still be using Local System accounts to
    start services such as SMTP and Exchange? These services are starting fine,
    but only until I install Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2003, then
    everything goes to pot!
