    Is there a feature in Active Directory that can be set to disable user
    accounts after an account has been inactive for a certain amount of time?
    Currently we run scripts to identify accounts true last logon date and then
    we disable them. Can this be set up automatically through Active Directory

  2. There is nothing in AD to facilitate this. However, it should help to use
    Joe Richards' oldcmp utility:

    NetWrix Inactive Users Tracker

    My old IT department used a tool called netwrix inactive users tracker, and I remember it worked pretty well. The tool automatically detects, reports and deactivates stale user accounts that have been inactive for a specified number of days. I think they offer a freeware version too, but I'm not sure if it automates account deactivation.
