I need a VBScript to report on user acct usage (URGENTLY..)

It -must- report on the following two things (anything additional + relevant is cool)

 - Most frequently used account
 - Least frequently used


I've attached the following code, dont know if it will work because I cant test. It's as far as I got without being completely stumped.

500 Points and a BIG AWESOME THANK YOU to anyone that helps in advance.. I have to hand this in in about .. 9 hours so I hope someone can finish my code
'To check the login time and disable the account
Dim dDate, oUser, oObject, oGroup
Dim iFlags, iDiff, iResult
dim arrweeks()
Const UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE = &H0002
 
'Point to group containing users to check
Set oGroup = GetObject("WinNT://MyDomain/Domain Users")
'Enable error trapping
 
On error resume Next
 
'for each user object in the group...
For each oObject in oGroup.Members
x = x + 1
  'ensure the user isn't a computer account!
  If (oObject.Class="User") And _
  (InStr(oObject.Name, "$") = 0) Then
     'retrieve the user object
     Set oUser = GetoObject(oObject.ADsPath)
     'get the last login Date from the domain
     'and strip off the time portion
     '(just need the date)
     dDate = oUser.get("LastLogin")
     dDate = Left(dDate,8)
     dDate = CDate(dDate)
 
     'calculate how long ago that was in weeks
     iDiff = DateDiff("ww", dDate, Now)
 
     'store into an array
 
     arrweeks(x) = idiff
     arrusername(x) = oObject.Name
 
     End If
  End If
Next
 
Do until strcount = 1
y = y + 1
	If arrusername = "" then
	strcount = 1
	else
	msgbox "account name" & vbtab & arrusername(y) & vbcrlf & _
		"how long since last login (weeks)" & vbtab & arrweeks(y) "
	End If
Loop

Hi,

Do you want to know the last login details?

If you have 2003 domain we can pull the lastlogin details to see who are the users that are not logged in before x days.

Hi,

Can't you do things the other way around ? So for example list all users that haven't logged in for say 20 weeks:

dsquery user ou=users,ou=nl,dc=microsoft,dc=com -inactive 20 -limit 0

Add >>output.txt to put it into a textfile.

Regards,

M

Argh I don't even know about that script, lol.

I just need it to show simply in a msgbox the LEAST used account, and the most frequently used account..

Once I get that script I can think about like, last 5 logged in accts and stuff x_O

You won't get that info from Active Directory. Its not counting the number of logons, just date and time when the user logs on.

And that's sonly stored on the DC that processed that request. That information is not replicated.

So i suggest you play with dsquery :P

MorDrakka is right in saying that it is only stored on the DC that processed the request.

Here's how I'd go about it.

1.  See if you can delimit user accounts somehow, such as membership of a group or containment in an OU.
2.  Use dsquery to search and retrieve the users and their last logon details
3.  Either output to Excel or use script
4.  Sort on the basis of logon date/time
5.  Trim to the ones you want

Forgot to mention that you need to repeat the search for each DC in each site accessible to the user.  If you are a large organisation then that will be a lot of searching, but if you are small it will be pretty simple.
