In a Windows AD 2003 environment i am trying to assign a specific "Log on As" user account to a service on a server using Group Policy Manager but I can not seem to be able to do it.
The only way that I have managed to achieve this so far is
1) Using a VB script
2) going to the local server and manually configuring the account to start the service with.

The server is a Windows 2003 SE which is a member of the AD.
Can you please help on how I can use GPM to assign the account through AD to a specific service.
