Are your machines in OUs that are based on labels? If so, then here's the search filter we use:

(&(name=KBOX_COMPUTER_NAME)(distinguishedName=CN=KBOX_COMPUTER_NAME,OU=Biology,OU=Departments,OU=GPO Exceptions,DC=FAS,DC=LCL))

This is for the Biology department, you would need to adjust the OU segments to match your AD structure.
