Here at work we have a windows 2000 AD infrastructure.   I need to find all users who havent logged in in the past 180 days so I can disable their accounts.  If it was a win 2003 AD then I just run that built in query function and be done with it but its win 2000.  Does anyone know how I can accomplish this or if its even possibel?  Thanks.

The the lastlogon.vbs script here: http://redmondmag.com/features/article.asp?editorialsid=550

You could also try dsquery from the command line:

dsquery user -inactive 25

Will display users that that have not logged in the last 25 weeks (about 180 days).

You could also do it in one step:

dsquery user -inactive 25 | dsmod user -disabled yes

You can also limit it to an OU:

dsquery user cn=users,dc=yourdomain,dc=com -inactive 25 | dsmod user -disabled yes

I tried dsquery on the domain controller but it does not recognize the command, I tried from my laptop and I get "windows could not run thise query because you are connected to a domain that does not support this query" Keep in mind this is a win 2000 domain.  I'll try that script next
