Local Security Policy: Unable to add a user

My Problem:
The problem is with the Local Security Policy. I am unable to add a user to "Act as part of the operating system" and "Log on as service" but I have added users to "Back up files and directories".

Symptoms:
The "Add Users or Group" button is disabled on "Act as part of the operating system" and "Log on as service".
These to policies have a different icon next to them. 2 computers with a piece of paper in-between them.

Other:
I am an admin on the box.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks,
   Marc

The icon you describe means the policy has been set at a higher level (OU, Site and/or Domain) and you are inheriting the setting.  The fact that you can't add a user would indicate that it has been added with a no-override option.

Try running GPResult at a command line to see which policies are being applied to your machine.  You will have to either change or remove the definition of that policy in order to change it via Local policy.

Applied Group Policy Objects:
- My DS Policy
- Default Domain Member Servers Policy
- Default Domain Policy
- Local Group Policy


How would I remove the definition of a policy?

I am not an admin on the box the policies are applied from.

Thanks,

You either have to have Administrative rights to the policy delegated to you, admin rights for the OU or domain administrative rights.

Sounds like in your case you will need to talk to your system admins to get the policy changed.

There is no way to disable the policy from your local machine.
