  • Computer Accounts Last Used/Logon Date

    Hello there,

    Is there a way to report the last logged on date for computer accounts ? I have a long list of account and I'm looking for a easy way to delete old inactive accounts.

    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 (Windows 2000 might be longer).
