Windows Server 2008. It's not a domain controller. My user is in admin group. UAC is disabled.

I'm trying to configure Lock Pages in Memory, but find that button "Add User or Group" is disabled, why could be that?

On the Start menu, I clicked Run. In the Open box, typed gpedit.msc. Button is still disabled:

That means it is enforced by Group Policy.

In that case, I couldn't change configuration of Lock Pages in Memory? – Delmonte Sep 6 '12 at 20:07
You can - by using Group Policy Management Console and editing the policy that is specifying the setting, or creating a new policy for that computer. – Greg Askew Sep 6 '12 at 20:29
Nope. On the Start menu, I clicked Run. In the Open box, typed gpedit.msc. See my addings at my question. Button is still disabled. – Delmonte Sep 6 '12 at 20:57
You're editing the local policy on the server. The setting is being enforced by a Domain policy. Run RSOP.msc to see which policy is enforcing the setting. – Chris McKeown Sep 6 '12 at 21:36
