Last logged on time

Hi guys,
We would like to achieve the following 2 tasks.

1)the last date/time a user has logged on to our domain.
We have around 150 domain controllers in a 2003 AD domain.

2)find out what domain administrators have not logged on with their account in the last 6 months.

Any help on finding this out would be much appreciated.

You can use the lastlogontimestamp variable and a tool called adfind by Joe Richards

I have an example here   http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/File_Servers/Active_Directory/Q_24724528.html

Lastlogon timestamp is accurate between 9-14 days

A nice free GUI AD tool for reporting is adinfo  http://www.cjwdev.co.uk/Software/ADReportingTool/Info.html

I'm off to bed but hopefully those help some.

Thanks

Mike

Oldcmp from Joe Richards, the author of ADFind will produce a reports of accounts that haven't been used in X number of days.  

Be aware that if you want the absolute accurate last login for a user in the last, say 2 days, you will  have to use the lastLogon attribute,which is NOT replicated.  You will have to query all DCs to be sure.
