Managing Computer Objects in a Windows 2000 Active Directory Domain

By jeremy.clark@kadena ·
My organization uses Active Directory with over 10000
users and over 8000 computers. We give LAN administrators
for each OU permission to add and remove user and computer
objects. The problem that we are running into is that some
LAN admins will add computer objects and over time get a
new computer and give it a new name and not delete the old
computer from their respective OU in active directory. At
some point we had over 5000 computer objects that we could
not contact and in order to better manage and get a good
number of how many computers we actually had on our
network we manually deleted the computer objects. I am
looking for a solution other than removing the permissions
from our LAN admins for each OU. My organization needs a
good count of actually how many computers we have on our
domain keeping that count accurate with the computer
objects in active directory. Any help is greatly
appreciated. Thanks for your time.
