When a computer account was created.

Hi guys hope you are well.
Guys, I am trying to determine when a server named "serverA" was created in our AD domain.
I would love some help on finding out when serverA was built, whether this be by querying AD etc.

Any help greatly appreciated.

There is a whencreated atttribute which is nice; I love adfind for this sort of thing

adfind -sc c:computername whencreated -tdca


adfind -sc c:serverA whencreated -tdca

the -sc is one of Joe's shortcuts....awesome tool.

Thanks

I have a batch file that checks all sorts of stats on a PC, here is a line that finds the install date of the OS

Set /P Computer=Enter the IP or Computer name to lookup: 

systeminfo /S \\%Computer% 2>NUL | findstr /c:"Original Install Date" > Result.txt

Open in new window


This will put the install date in a text file where the batch file is run from

in AD.... search for your server's name... properties...account tab...
you'll see a field called "whenCreated"
