Is there a simple report that can show a list of PC NAMES/Service Tags connected to specific OU's in AD? Or is this something that can only be done through the Windows environment with AD specific tools?

 

(we have 22 locations under different OU's all connected to the same domain)

The way I would do this would be to tag the computer account's Description field with the OU name and then create corresponding LDAP labels that I could report on (or just filter on in the Inventory screen).  Here's a post I did covering the steps to do this, just disregard the part on patching.

Another option, assuming each OU is location based and on a different subnet, would be to create a smart label targetting the subnet range - i.e. 192.168.1.0 = Corporate OU, 192.168.2.0 = San Francisco OU.  Personally I don't use this approach since ~1/3 of my machines are remote and pull addresses from our corporate subnet, but this may work fine depending on your situtation (and would be much faster to setup than the approach I outlined above).
