I was checking the event logs on the server  and I noticed successful security audits for the username: servername$.  Hundreds seem to occur everyday and I do not think this is right.  the full details are below.....
Successful Network Logon:
       User Name:      GLAZERITE01$
       Domain:            GLAZERITE-DOM
       Logon ID:            (0x0,0x111A2513)
       Logon Type:      3
       Logon Process:      Kerberos
       Authentication Package:      Kerberos
       Workstation Name:      
       Logon GUID:      {64d9da07-9e8e-7914-e771-92e9abeecc0d}
       Caller User Name:      -
       Caller Domain:      -
       Caller Logon ID:      -
       Caller Process ID: -
       Transited Services: -
       Source Network Address:      -
       Source Port:      -

Could someone tell me whether this is correct as I have only ever seen audits for actual usernames in their before i.e administrator or gregd.  If this is not correct could someone please tell me how to increase the security?

Thanks in advance
