You can use the Security filtering option in the GPO to accomplish your task. First remove the Authenticated users from the list and add appropriate users, groups or computer to whom this policies will apply.

Just put the computers in to their own OU, which you will have to do anyway to appl a group policy to them, otherwise you will have to apply it at domain level which will then effect all Computers/Servers.

So create a new OU, move the computers in to it and apply the group policy there.

Hi,

By default domain controleer will be in different OU,

Only Domain controller policy will be applied to that OU.

it you want to stop the inheritance.

Kindly check the block inheritance option in the group policy property of Domain controller OU..!

Regards,
Prem
