Windows NT Resource kit - usrstat tool should do this.  Gives other info too, but you should be able to yank just first and last names with a script if that's all you want.

Usrstat.exe will only give me last logon's. I need to download ALL the users currently configured under my NT domain.

Domain accounts do not contain First/Last Name fields.  They contain only FULL NAME fields.

Use ADDUSERS.exe from NT 4 Resource Kit

See: http://www.ss64.com/nt/addusers.html

To dump users to a file (doesn't include passwords so no security is compromised.)

ADDUSERS /d:u C:\USERS.TXT YOURDOMAINNAME

Domain accounts do not contain First or Last Name fields.  But this dump will include these field

User Name,Full name, Password (always blank on EXPORT), Description, HomeDrive, Homepath, Profile, Script

Example:
[User]
jimmye,James Edward Phillip II,,,,,,
alexd,Alex Denuur,,,E:\,E:\users\alexd,,
ronj,Ron Jarook,ChangeThis,,E:\,E:\users\ronj,,
sarahs,Sarah Smith,,,,,,

hi, there

in User account you can export them as a cvs, xls file.

You can create user + groups in a xls. spreadsheet and import it

Yes, that would work, too.

However the answer to the question is ... no.

The way we accomplished this at the last site I worked at was to download exchange mailboxes into one database, download the domain logons into another database and then match them up.  Unfortunately while this DID give us a LAST and FIRST name fields it also resulted in a lot of errors and mismatches.  Users without mailboxes and mailboxes without user logon/owners.

I can now download user information using the following commad:

addusers \\computer_name /d userlist.txt

But this command downloads all the accounts, groups, local account info and also disabled accounts. All I want is the user download of ONLY active accounts. Is there is a way to accomplish this task?

Please advise.

No.  That option is not available with that tool.   Nor have I found a tool that could do that for me.

Hi Guys,

I was able to doload all disabled accounts using the following script:

FOR /F "skip=4 tokens=*" %%A IN ('NET USER /DOMAIN ^| FIND /V "The command completed successfully"') DO CALL :ParseUsers %%A
GOTO:EOF

:ParseUsers
FOR %%? IN (%*) DO CALL :ChkAcc %%?
GOTO:EOF

:ChkAcc
NET USER %1 /DOMAIN | FIND "Account active               Yes" >NUL
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 ECHO.%1
GOTO:EOF
