Is there an easy way of disabling all domain accounts after 60 days of inactivity (i.e. not logged in)? I appreciate passwords expire (dependant on policy after a predefined number of days, however they arent truly locked as it just prompts a user for a fresh password).

Can you forsee any issues in applying such a policy?

We use the exact script as recommended above with great success.

Not looking for points, just agreeing.

We modify it to set the search to start in OUs that contain actual-people user-objects.  We also have service accounts that exceed our 30 day limit that we don't want to disable due to inactivity so we put them in other OUs not subject to our script.
