Active Directory Organizational Units Search Limiter

I have one of the largest implementations of AD in the world (20,000+ OUs).  I would like to speed up adding specific OU's to a network discovery, preferably by searching by "distinguished name" (OU=S12345,OU=12345,DC=xxx,DC=yyy,DC=zzz) (that would be the server OU for an individual site).  Or even better, let my specify the DN directly without having to search at all.  Just give me a verification that it's a valid DN/OU.

Other suggestions:

  1. don't select all OU's by default.
  2. don't expand all OU's by default
  3. don't start counting computers/servers by default
  4. have a search/limiting field to narrow results
