VBfScript for Identifing Inactive A/c In AD

can you guys help me to create the VB script for identifing the Inactive A/c from Active Directory. Have testing DSquery & other tools but not 100% satisfied in terms of report. If you guys help me to create a VB script only for Identifying the inactive A/c it will be great help for me.

Thanks

I know it's not VbScript, but it does give very pretty reports in the format of your choosing:

And despite the name it does work for User accounts as well as computers.

It shows details of every attribute which can be used to determine activity. Choices of reporting format include HTML and CSV.

Ok can we create VB script? or Do you have any idea from where I can get this. I would like to go with VB script.

Which fields do you want to use for inactivity? What functional level is your domain?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Domain functional level is Win2003 & inactivity interms of Users ( login & logout time )

Okay, then the most useful are:

lastLogon
lastLogonTimeStamp

lastLogon is accurate, but not replicated which means every DC must be queried.

lastLogonTimeStamp is replicated which makes for quick queries, but can be up to 14 days out of date.

If you're looking at inactivity in terms of months that 14 days is fairly inconsequential. Happy with lastLogonTimeStamp?

Yes with Lastlogon TimeStamp & just for FYI I am looking for inactivity in terms of months.

This one creates a tab delimited report file called Test.txt (REPORT_FILE; in the same folder as you run the script). It only returns accounts that haven't logged in for 90 days (INACTIVE_DAYS).

Need any changes?
