How/where can I check if SharePoint service account has the 'logon as service' permission delegated? Is it in AD or locally on the server?

It depends if you want to use GPO to grant that right or not. I usually just do it locally since I don't need it to often.

The question is how do I check if it has this granted or not both through GPO and/or locally. Thanks.

Are you trying to check all users to see who has it and not just a specific user? If you're just looking for a specific user on a machine that link will tell you how to do it

The issue has been resolved. AD admin made some changes in the GPO that was blocking the original policy.
