I need a script to be able to identify the last time a machine has been authenticated in Active Directory, I am trying to find dormant machines and clean up active directory; I have full rights over just one container of Active Directory, so I am limited in my capabilities, I have however been able to get a script to enable me to find out the last time a user logged on.

Or
Get a simple one in logon script, it will write down the date, time and the login name to a text file in the server. (But make sure you append it, not overwrite the text file)
echo %computername% %username% %date% %time% >> \\servername\log\log.txt
