Hi

Does anybody know a utility that will show me all inactive computers/servers in Server Manager (NT4 Server), along with the date which they last connected to the domain?  

Many thanks

Mick

i have a vb script if your interested, it will query the domain, dump a list of computers and then delete them from the domain if they haven't logged in in a given period of time.

create a textfile called dclist.txt in the same directory you are running the script from. add all your domain controllers to this file. change intAccountAge = 60 to suite your needs, i have found that any pc that hasn't logged in in 60 days  has generally been reimaged/reinstalled and given a new name. hope this helps

m1ck99, what's your definition of "inactive computers/servers"? do you mean those computers that ever logged on the network (appeared in the computer list of network neighborhood)? you want to know the date of their last logon?

This script will delete any computer account older than 60 days, that is 60 days without logging onto the network
to run it without deleting just change           Call objDomain.Delete("Computer", objComp.Name)  to 'Call objDomain.Delete("Computer", objComp.Name)


It will then generate a list of computers that will be deleted but will not delete them till you run it again and uncomment that line
