Auditing Account Logon Events SERVER 2003

On a WIN 2003 Server I am a local ADMIN as well as a DOMAIN admin. I am going to start/programs Administrative Tools Local Security Policy.

From there I am expanding Audit Policy and trying to turn on AUDIT ACCOUNT LOGON EVENTS for both success and failure. Currently it is set to audit for failure only. When I go into the properties of this setting the boxes are greyed out indicating I cannot change them.
Why is that or how can I fix??
I am using remote control to work on the server.

Is this a domain controller?  If so, go to the Domain Controllers OU, and edit these options on the Domain Controllers Default GPO.  See if that works for you...

It seems to me that you are getting the local policy pushed from the Domain.  Go to the Domain Policy and see if your Audit settings are set there.

They are greyed out because it's taking the policies from Active Directory.
1) Check in which OU is that Server.
2) Open the properties for that OU and go to "Group Policy" Tab.
3) Check which policies are afecting that server in the "Group Policy Object Links" list.

If you want to modify those computer security settings for that server, you'll have to do it by modifying the policy.... (selecting it from that list, and clicking on 'Edit').

Hope it helps !
