    Does anyone know if there's a way to grant access to the local System
    account on our member servers to the NETLOGON share on the Domain
    Controllers, without opening the share to anonymous users?

    We're trying to get the local System accounts on our servers to run a script
    in the NETLOGON share on the DC's.

  2. Add a permission using the kind of trustee: DOMAIN\SERVERNAME$
    To grant access to all computers except DC, useDOMAIN\Domain Computers.

    This is not possible. The local System account is just that - local. Only
    the local SAM on the server knows about it so you cant include it in a ACL on
    a different server.

    I presume there is a reason you cant use a domain account to run the scripts?

    Don't forget that both Local System and Network Service use the credentials
    of the machine account when accessing the network, so that would be the
    computer account for a domain-joined machine. Local service on the other
    hand has no network credentials.
