Is there any way to filter computers by last logon?  I see an option similar to that for users, but that doesn't help.

I need to delete all the computers from active directory that are not current, without hand counting.  For example, if a computer has not logged into the domain for over two weeks, it should get purged.

Two weeks is a little short - what happens with laptop users that are on the road?

If your domain is in Native mode, then this will tell you what computers are "stale" (haven't logged in in 4 weeks).

dsquery computer -inactive 4

To disable them at the same time:

dsquery computer -inactive 4 | dsmod computer -disabled yes



To move them after disabling them:

dsquery computer -inactive 4 | dsmod computer -disabled yes
dsquery computer -disabled | dsmove -newparent "OU=stale,DC=domain,DC=com"
