You can use a tool called adfind by MVP Joe Richards to get a report

http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm


adfind -default -binenc -f "&(objectcategory=computer)(lastlogontimestamp>={{UTC:2010/2/28}})" name lastlogontimestamp -tdc

so the attribute I'm keying off there is lastlogontimestamp and that attribute is accurate up to 9-14 days, much more on that attribute here:

http://blogs.technet.com/askds/archive/2009/04/15/the-lastlogontimestamp-attribute-what-it-was-designed-for-and-how-it-works.aspx

another great joeware tool to find old computers is the tool old computer

http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/oldcmp/index.htm

You can use that to identify, move, disable,  and even delete old machines.

One strategy many people use is to first disable them then after the delete them.

Thanks

Mike
