Create a WMI Rule.
Syntax is like
select * from Win32_ComputerSystem where ( Name like 'MACHINE%' or Name = 'SERVERX') and (UserName like 'mueller%' or Username = 'meier' )
You MUST (!!!) add your Users to the WMI’s Delegation block.
Create A GPO object.
Add your users to ‘security filters’. (Check GPO’s Delegation for ‘Authenticated Users’ read only [switch off GPO pulling!]’)
Switch your WMI-Filter on
