Local group policy: access this computer from the network. I cannot add a user

I am trying to add a user under the local group policy editor.

I did the following:

gpedit.msc

computer config/windows settings/security settings/local policies/user rights assignments/access this computer from the network

The button is grayed out.....

thanks!

I am trying to add a user to the "Access this computer from the network" right in the Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc), but when I click on "Add User or Group", the button is grayed out.

Sorry for the confusion.

Does the little symbol next to the "Access ..." policy name look different than the others? If this machine is a domain member, it's likely that this policy is configured by a domain GPO, blocking the local configuration.

There is a lock on the User Rights Assignment Folder...is that what you mean?

Yes, those settings are then coming from a domain GPO; you'll have to edit this one.
