Does anyone know whether there is a free tool which will scan AD for inactive accounts?

If there's nothing free, how about something good?

Define inactive please.  Is there a time limit since the last login?

Or use oldcmp from www.joeware.net/freetools - will report on, disable and/or delete inactive user and computer accounts.

PeteLong, I have checked out both of your posts and neither coding is successfully running.

LauraEHunterMVP, your free tool post is running, however I'd like to find out the LastLogin Value.  Some of the AD accounts are set for the PW to never expire, so they're being pulled incorrectly.

Any ideas?
