You also may know that when you have a webfarm, network service isn’t the “user” you can use for kernel-mode authentication. With thew following command you can configure that the application pool user is used for kernel-mode authentication.
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set config -section:system.webServer/security/authentication/windowsAuthentication -useAppPoolCredentials:true

<windowsAuthentication enabled="true" useAppPoolCredentials="true" />
You can configure this at the webserver/website/application level.
