Domain user as administrator for certain computers


  • Hello, I have a situation that I need help with.

    I need to give a Domain user or rather a group with several Domain users administrator rights to a certain desktop pool. I am using VMware Horizon to create VMs and assign users automatically. Because they are just Domain users they are given just user rights but I need them to be admins for those VMs. I have tried going through group policy on AD but if I add them to Administrator group they have access to AD and other servers as well and I would like to avoid that. So my question is can I through group policy just put them as admins for certain group of computers, maybe limit them just to computers in OU that I have created for those users and computers? 

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, using Windows server 2012 R2.
