Hi,
I have two server with similar setup and db configuration, both server will have access to another server to run and save some files.
in serverA I have to change sqlservr and sqlagent services to run under domain account before I can access the shared path
but in serverB I can use LocalSsystem to access the shared path.

I'm now confused why I can't have localsystem to run in serverA

We run windows 2008 and sql2008

Check the permissions that have been granted to the local service account  also you might want to check that the machines are in the same AD OU just incase there are different policies in place on different OUs in your organization.

Does the SQL Server service need access to resources outside of serverA?  If the answer is yes, then you will have to use a domain account.
