How to allow setting Local Security Policies on local server that is joined to domain

Last Modified: 2015-08-28
I have a server joined to a domain.  I need to change settings under Local Security Policy>User Rights Assignment>Log on as a service.
When I drill down and open the Log on as a service the Add User or Group button is inactive.  I can get around this by creating a OU, blocking inheritance and adding this server to the OU.  My question, Is there a better way to do this?
