Local Security Settings, Cannot Add User to User Rights Assignment

Posted on 2007-11-15
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I need to add a couple users to the Local Security Settings/Policy of a domain server (NOT a DC) to allow another app to access the box.

When I browse to the Local Security Policy and then goto teh Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment. It will not let me add a user to the Allow Log on Locally, Act as Part of the Operating System and Log on as a Service policies. When I open them up the Add User or Group... button is greyed out.

Underneat there is a yellow alert that says "Modifying this setting may affect compatability with clients, services, and applications".
