    In that systems list of users, put the user account(s) you want to have access that system and make sure to include the domain admins group or you won't be able to use it either.

    Go to Computer Management and then look for Local Users and Groups.  Under the Groups folder, open the "Users" group and make the changes here.  (you should check the power users group as well).

    If you want to create a user account that can only log on to specific systems, then you have to set the systems said user can log on to via Active Directory properties for said user.

    You can also modify a group policy to disallow logon locally to specific users and groups.
