by default only admins should have the login locally right

To allow a user to only log on to some computers: Open the user-properties for the user by using ADUC, click on Account-tab and use the "Log on to"-button. Enter the computer names allowed to logon to.

on the server you are looking to do this on, define the below policy settings
Local security policy
User rights assignment
Allow logon locally

and add only the admin users you would like to login.

I only want to allow one administrator account or a group name to be able to log onto the servers.

what I mean is only allow users that belong to a certain group be able to log onto the servers.

Hello sk_raja_raja is this the path that you mean?

Start Gpedit

Local Computer Policy - Computer Configuration - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Local Policies - Users Rights Assignment - Allow Log on locally

If that is the case how does one transfer that template to my other Windows servers?  or is this another question i need to post?

No you can better do this by domain group policy

1.Group all the servers in a OU
2.Create a new group policy and define the "allow log on locally" settings by adding the desired domain group on it.
3.Link this policy only to this OU and enforce it

So, this policy will be applied to all the servers on this OU
