In a 2008 domain I created a task that runs on all computers in the domain under the system account.
The tasks tries to copy a file from a network share. I only want a specified group of computers be able to access the file. I created an AD group, added the computers to the group and gave the group appropiate permissions to the file.
However, my task is not able to copy the file (access denied).

When i add the AD group "Domain computers" to the ACL of the file, or I add an single computer account directly everything works fine....

Did you reboot the computer after you added them to the group, that way the group membership is added to their token ThanksMike
