    Old NT Computer accounts

    Locked

    How can you detect old computer accounts on the domain. Is there a utility that shows you the last time a computer logged on to a domain or a utility that removes computer accounts that have not accessed the domain after a set amount of time has expired?

      The client computers that have not accessed the domain usually appear grey in Server Manager. Server Manager is in the Administrative Tools of NT Server. You can manually delete any computer account from there.

      I am not sure about set theseto automatically delete (I know they grey out after a period of like 3 months of non-use — but I think that’s all they do). I do not have access to WinNT server right now to check.

      The Windows Resource Kit has a number of utilities that will run from the command line and list stats on users and machine accounts, including last logon. These utilities can be included with a script to list all accounts that have not been accessed in say the last 120 days, or whatever time period you are looking for.
