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.
