I would like to apply a policy to only one Server in my server OU.  Is it possible to do it without creating another OU?

You can edit the local policy in your server that want to apply the GPO. This way you don't need to apply the GPO to all objects in an OU in ADUS. You only need to change this policy in the server you want to apply. The disadvantages are that the policy apply only to the server locally, GPO is not configured in AD.

local policy to a server in a domain does not work, at least in my case it is greyed out.

Actually, local policy works, but are not administered by AD.

You can run mmc
Then add snapin
Select GPO editor
When prompted select local computer
That's your local policy

Configure what need.

It was just as simple as that. On the security filtering tab I specified the Computer Name and the Username.
