Is it possible to find out the date when a user account in AD was disabled. It's important if we can prove what date it was disabled.

Thanks in advance

Edit: Domain functional level is Windows Server 2008

You can see the last modification date as an AD object attribute, but that doesn't indicate what the particular modification was (in this case, you're looking for "account disabled").

Unless you already have object access auditing turned on in AD, I'm afraid there's no way to "prove" what you're asking.

Sorry...

Thanks. I used ADSI Edit and found some useful info. Like you say without auditing turned on it's difficult to prove anything.
