I have workgroup Windows XP Pro SP3 with SQL Server 2008 R2
I have read the answer of Satya SKJ in
Purpose of "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" login in SQL Server 2005 topic in this forum (*):
"Local System account. The name of this account is NT AUTHORITY\System.
It is a powerful account that has unrestricted access to all local system resources. It is a member of the Windows Administrators group on the local computer, and is therefore a member of the SQL Server sysadmin fixed
Why do not I see "NT Authority\SYSTEM" as a member of Administrators group in my computer
(compmgmt.msc ---> System Tools --< Local Users and Groups --> Groups --> administrators)?
I see there only Administrator.
How to check and manage the membership of "NT Authority\SYSTEM" (as well as of "NT Authority\Network
Service" and "NT Authority\Local Service") in Windows?
Now, I found the same phrase it in MS SQL Server 2008 R2
Selecting an Account for the SQL Server Agent Service
(SQL Server 2008 R2)
