Rights on a build-server

Hi Experts,
we have just added a new build-server on a 2003 R2 because it showed out that our application did not run properly on this server.

Now we want to the build-service to run as "Network service" like it is on the other (2008R2) build server, but we cannot make it. How can we make the 2003 buildserver use "Network services" against the TFS 2010 server?

I did, but we still could not make the build service connect to the TFS server.

For now we use domain admin, but of course this is not ideal and we would like to use a service-user-account. The question is how.

Make sure the password field is blank, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc739213(WS.10).aspx

Perhaps the network service account does not have permission to the FTP root folder on the disk?
You could either fix this, or just create a separate user account o be used to run the service, and give this permission to the appropriate folders. The account will be given "log on as a service" right automatically once you configure the service to start with it.

I gave the 2003 server itself rights on the TFS-server.
