AD inactive users list?

Discussion in 'Active Directory' started by Smokey Grindel, Dec 7, 2009.

  1. Is there anyway or any tools out there to help an admin get a list of all
    users in AD that haven't been active in x number of days? we are trying to
    find a way to remove old inactive accounts as part of a security audit...

  2. Use Joe Richards' free oldcmp utility. See this link:

    It works equally well with user accounts.

  3. Hello Smokey,

    I second Richards suggestion, this tool is really helpful. Use it myself
    very often.

    Best regards

  4. ah cool, I had an old version of that and I don't think it supported users,
    nice to see the current version does

  5. Oldcmp works well, but I have a script that lists out users last logon as
    well plus it will give you many other users attributes for audit purposes
    etc... We run it nightly and save all output. We can then go back and
    track additions and deletions of users, etc...

    Yes, download netwrix inactive users tracker. It will send you regular reports detailing user accounts that have been inactive for a pre-determined numbers of days. You can also set it up to automatically deactivate these accounts as well. There is a freeware version available for download too (NetWrix: #1 for Change Auditing - Simple, Lightweight, Affordable), but it won’t deactivate the accounts.
