When you configure the service to operate with a username and password other than yours or a system default, it usually gives this right automatically. Have you tried that yet?
Of course, the alternative is to add the user to that right through a GPO attached to the Domain Controllers OU.

Check RSOP.msc on the server and drill down to that setting to see if it is being inherited from another policy.

I had to add the domain user to the domain group policy the issued a gpupdate /force on the server and I was then able to start the service

using rsop.msc showed the change
