    Re: Computer Accounts in Domain

    Your computer accounts are listed under the Domain Users group as computer$. You have to expand the Global Groups option, then the Domain Users object under there shows you these accounts. Right-click on it, then choose View All User Details. This will display all users and computer accounts along with all of their properties, including Password Age in the right window.

    You can filter this list to only show you computer accounts after they are displayed in the right window. Go to Edit->Find/Filter, type in $ for the search string, and for column choose UserName. Check the box to Filter out records that DO NOT match the search string and click OK.

    This will leave you with only the computer accounts and you can sort by password age by clicking on the field header for password age. Password age is relevant because computers will change their password with the domain periodically when they are online, I believe the default might be around 7-10 days.

    What you do is look at normal computer accounts and see what is a usual time frame on your network. The ones at the top with several hundred days are computers that are no longer active.

    Computer Accounts in Domain

    Is there a way of finding out when a computer account was logged onto a Domain ( not when a user account was logged in).

    I want to remove old Computer Accounts that are no longer used.

    Thanks
