When I try and add myself to be able to 'log on as a batch job' all the options are greyed out. Ive tried to login as the domain administrator but have the same greyed out issue:-

Im using Windows Server 2008 Standard, and its a domain controller, but not the primary.

Any ideas?

Without looking at any logs, we could simply say that this policy is governed by a Group Policy. So even if you are the Domain Admin, you still won't be able to make any modifications to it from the local group policy editor. You need to login to Group Policy Management and find the policy which governs this(usually its the Default Domain Policy GPO) and add your account from there.

Hope this helps.

If you have a lot of GPOs in your environment, you can use the Resultant Set of Policy console (rsop.msc) to determine which GPO is controlling that setting. Alternatively, you can run gpresult /h <filename> to export the RSoP data to an HTML file that you can then open in a browser (IE is preferred in this case).

Instead of doing gpedit.msc or do gpmc.msc

As advised above find out which GPO is applying those policy settings and accordingly modify that particular GPO and you are done. It will not make any issue even if you do it from secondary server, but it is advisible to carry out such changes from Primary Server so the GPO get replicated easily.

After GPO is applied, make sure you run gpupdate /force from the client server which need the change to be done.
