I've recently be come to a company that has 33 active computers. When I open ADUC there are 195 computers in active directory. I would like to get rid of the old junk ones as I can tell that AD hasn't been cleaned up since the company was founded.
Here is the dilemma.
I open command prompt and enter
"dsquery computer -inactive 10" this should display the computers that have not been logged into in the last 10 weeks. it only shows 35 computers.
