Rowland, it is not (only) a matter of authentication, it is a matter of
'act' with machine account.
I've digged a bit but found nothing than (i use WPKG as deployment
system, it is only an example):
probably was some old thread in mailing list; anyway, SYSTEM user can
act (eg, access shares) with the machine account credentials; AFAIK
accessing as SYSTEM to a share will trigger an access with machine
account, and as fallback as anonymous/Everyone.
So, if you mean that machine account can auth without UID, it is right;
if they need access (non anonymous) to some share, i suppose a UID is
I hope i was clear.
