Perhaps the simplest option would be this:

dsquery user -inactive 8 -limit 0

The inactive interval is measured in weeks here, not days.

Otherwise, OldCmp is a golden-oldie :)

The name suggests it's for computers, but it works just as well for users. It'll produce reports in a number of different formats :)

In Active Directory, right click 'Saved Queries', then New -> New Query.

Give it a name and select the root you wish to query, click 'Define Query' and select Users tab, then select 'Days Since last logon'.

Then, when it's run, right click the completed query and export to csv or whatever you want.

on a DC in a command-line type:

dsquery user -inactive <NumberOfWeeks> -limit 0 | dsget user -fn -ln -samid >>C:\inactive_users.txt

where <NumberOfWeeks> is integer number
