Is there any way to find out how long it has been since a particular workstation has authenticated to the domain controller?  Knowing this information will help us to clean up the domain computer account list.

Hi richdmoore,

You can use a utility called NetPWAge.  This tells you when the computer account password was last changed.  If it returns 60, then the machine has been dead for 60 days.

You can download this from http://www.optimumx.com/download/#NetPWAge

I found this information from the PAQ http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinNT/Q_20978003.html

I hope that this helps.
