Hi all,

I would like to perform the below scenario but I don't know how?

Restrict user A to login his particular machine only and prohibit others except the administrator to login on the same machine.

How can I do that throught the local GPO or domain GPO or how ??

Two suggestions, Remove the domain users group from the list of users in the local computer's users group (and add the user in question)  And/or in Active directory (user account properties) set the computer(s) that the user is allowed to login to.

You can try this.
Edit the local policy on the computer and set the Allow Logon Locally to only the accounts you want.

You COULD do that, but modify the local groups is easier and more common.

Go to Start > Run and type 'gpedit.msc' and press enter.
In the next window, expand Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies  and select User Rights Assignment
Now on the right pane double click on 'Deny Logon Locally' and add the required users in the same. And restart the system and have a check.
