  • Hi protokos  ,


    Thanks for post here.


    After reading your post I understand that you want to restrict local account log into  computer .

    If I misunderstand please let me know.


    Based on my knowledge , this chosen list can’t be removed after domain joined, but  you may like to edit computer local security policy to achieve the goal :


    1.       log in computer with local administrator account.

    2.       Perform “gpedit.msc” to open group policy editor.

    3.       Navigate to :computer configuration /windows settings/security settings/local policies/User Right assignment

    4.       Edit policy  “Deny log on locally” to add all the local account in it.

    5.       Modify the password of local administrator account .

    Please notice that this policy is not applied to local administrator account.


    Hope that’s helpful.
