    Pwd Last Set is the field you need to look for if this is a Windows 2000 domain. Read this entire topic and you will see there is a difference in how you get this data in a Windows NT domain versus a Windows 2000 domain.

    Hi,
    I try the procedure as you described for 6.0B. But, I don't have the option to view the "Password Changed" in the right windows?

    Am I missing something?

    In a Windows NT domain, it will be the same way. If you are in a Windows 2000 domain, you'll right-click on the Computers object beneath your domain and choose Tabular Views->Computer (Detailed). When that displays, the column you want is Pwd Last Set.

    How do I do this in 5.7c?

    I get different submenus from global groups > Domain users

    I need to clean out the computer names that are no longer in use.

    I'm not sure but would assume UserName is the one you'll see in Server Manager.

    One more follow-on question.
    For the computer, it shows a 'User Name' and Full Name' I am assuming that one is the original name, and the other is the current name. If I am correct, which is the current name and would both (or which) names show in Server Manager?
    I am unable do delete straight from this screen so I am trying to blast the correct accounts.

    Thanks again,

    Pat

    Expand the Global Groups option, then the Domain Users group under there shows you these accounts.

    Your steps were accurate, the only problem I ran into is that my Hyena shows 'Users' not 'Domain Users' and with I filter on '$' I get 'No records found matching filter specification'.
    Is there a way to add 'Domain Users' to list of catergories like 'Computers' and 'Global Groups'?

    Thanks again for your time and effort. I am using Hyena v5.5, rev 'B'

    Computers will periodically change the password used in communicating with the PDC of the 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, I believe the default might be around 7-10 days.

    So, any accounts that have a large number of days since last change will be suspect.

    Yes, I am trying to clean up our list of workstations.

    Are you trying to determine which computers are no longer in use?

    I'm not sure that you can and I don't know if this is tracked by Windows. If this is an Active Directory domain, you might see if there is a lastlogon attribute set for the workstation in AD.

    started a topic Workstation last logon to domain

    Workstation last logon to domain

    How can you get Hyena to tell the last time a workstation logged onto the domain, similar to the way it does for users?
    This is an NT domain with W2K workstations.

    TIA,

    Pat
