Hi guys. I have just changed the default identity for my Website's application pool. The reason ive done this is to run the site's scripts as a specific user so it has specific access to files.
Once change the Application Pool identity from NetworkService to my user, I have to give it the "Log on as batch job" right using the local security policy editor. I get to the screen, and the button to add a user is greyed out!
However, in the list already are 3 groups..Administrators, Backup Operators and Performance Log Users. So, for a quick bit of debugging, i added my user to the 'Performance Log Users' group using Active Directory and it works perfectly. However, this is not ideal as the 'Performance Log Users', has nothing to do with running a web apps!
So in breif, how can I add the user to the "log on as batch job" user rights list when it is greyed out?
I have attached a screenshot.
