if you are importing systems through active directory sync. you can make a query to list the computer names you want. But you need some standart naming to match some string in them
Split your list of "Target Systems" into text files with one systerm name per line.
Then create a new Group in a development site to import the "new" system names from the text file.
Run a Duplicate Systems Query and order them by Location in Directory Structure.
Now delete all the "Dummy" entries listed in the Development site group.
Select the remaining systems from the search query output and move those into the Development Test group and you now have a nice tidy set of live systems to do whatever you want with and when finished upgrading you should be able to simply delete them from the test area and allow them to reappera in their original directory places by subnet filtering.
Repeat process as many times as necessary with the other sytsem file import lists.
