If the server is a member server and you want different Account Policies you'll have to remove the server from the domain and configure the server as a "stand alone" server (Do not attach it to the domain).  It will then use its own local security policies.

If the server is a DC, you'll have to create a second domain to setup different Account policies.

If you are not referring to the domain account policy, simply block the inheritance of the group policy in question and create a new one for the server at the OU level.

Hi, stuartknox,

Another way you can try is to create an user group which use default policy.

- In the GPO where display your GPO link, you highlight the default policy and click "Properties".  
- Under "Security" Tab, highlight "Authenticated Users" and under Permission, uncheck "Read" and "Apply Group Policy"
- Click "Add" button to add the user group that need to use default policy and submit
- Make sure you highlight the new user group you just added; under Permission, check "Read" and "Apply Group Policy"

This way, you allow certain users to use default policy and rest of others will ignore the Global policy.

Hope this help!
