dsquery: find inactive users of a particular group

Last Modified: 2007-12-19

I'm trying to get a list of all users who havn't loggedin for more than 4 weeks and are members of the VPN group:

my first attempt:
dsquery user domainroot -limit 0 -inactive 4 | dsget user -memberof | find /i "CN=VPN"

the issue being that the filters take out so much, the resulting info is useless (listing group containers witih no user affiliation) e.g.
   "CN=VPNc,OU=company Worldwide,DC=corp,DC=company,DC=com"
   "CN=VPNc,OU=company Worldwide,DC=corp,DC=company,DC=com"
   "CN=VPNc,OU=company Worldwide,DC=corp,DC=company,DC=com"
   "CN=VPNc,OU=company Worldwide,DC=corp,DC=company,DC=com"
   "CN=VPNc,OU=company Worldwide,DC=corp,DC=company,DC=com"
   "CN=VPNc,OU=company Worldwide,DC=corp,DC=company,DC=com"
   "CN=VPNc,OU=company Worldwide,DC=corp,DC=company,DC=com"

How can I construct a usefull query?
