How do I find the last login name, date, time and last modified for a offline computer

Hi,

I have a Windows 2000 DC and from my AD there are several old computers. These computers are offline and I will like to know if it is possible to retrieve details like login name in that computer, the date and  time and computer last modified date? If so, how can I do it.
I will prefer to use Microsoft tools or scripting. No third party tools are allowed because my environment is sensitive.

For my knowledge, where are the above information stored and do they exist forever? I don't see them in the AD. Hence I believe it is written somewhere in the DC.

I don't understand what you meant by saying that the computers were offline, but I assume that you want to know when the users were logged onto the domain using those computers. See this page:

This shows you how to pull it up from the AD:

Hi btdownloads7,

Allow me to make myself clearer. In WSUS, we have a list of computers that has not reported for X number of days. These computers are still in our AD but we are not able to ping those computers. They could be offline or for some reason not able to communicate with WSUS.

Hence, I will like to retrieve the last user who log on to those computers and the date the user logon. We can then contact the user to find out where the computer is.

Hi Guys,

Maybe I should rephase my question.

I have several offline computers. How do I find the last time this computer was online so that I can removed it from my AD?

Thanks. I have found the script to extract the computer last logon time as well as using DSQUERY to find out the inactive computers.
