what is nt authority\network service account?

I'm setting up WSUS server and in the docs the nt authority\network service account is referenced?  I'm not sure if this is a seperate account or an alias for another.  Don't know where to go from here.

It is a separete account.  When you choose your update services properties, and goto the logon account, choose THIS ACCOUNT and put in NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService and the appropriate password.

I have mine set as a domain administrator, i think because we had a problem using the network service account

The NT AUTHORITY/NETWORK SERVICE database user is part of the IIS Worker Process Group. In the SQL Server Login Properties not only click on add "ASPNET" to add this user as a Login for the selected database. You'll also have to give rights to the "NT AUTHORITY/NETWORK SERVICE" user, which was the user that your ASP.NET web application tried to use to access your database ..
