Log on as a batch job

I'm attempting to set up a batch job on a server in the task scheduler, However, when I set it up and hit ok, I get the message stating that, "This task requires that the user account specified has a Log on as batch job rights."

I did a bit of research and found that it needs to be fixed in the "Local Security Policy". I then took a look at both "Deny log on as a batch job" and "Log on as a batch job" under the local security policy, but the option to add a user or group is grayed out. Would anyone happen to know a fix for this? Thanks!

Are you running secpol.msc as administrator ?

Yes I am.
This sounds as though this might be controlled by group policy, you will need to use the group policy editor to make this change.

Run RSOP and find out if the Logon as  batch job/Deny logon etc are actually getting applied from any policies. If it is getting applied, you will be able to identify the policy and can edit that policy instead of doing it on local policies.
