Quickie: Service Accounts description

More often I see people (IT admins) not understand differences between Local Service Accounts so I decided to write more about it:


This account has full access to local computer. It can access network resources with rights (account) of the computer. This account has full access to domain it self when used on Domain Controller.


This account has same right as local Users group. It goes to network as annonymous user (null session).


It’s almost same as LOCAL SERVICE. Only difference is that it uses computer account to access network resources.
