Hiding disabled accounts in Active Directory when performing an LDAP search


We have Xerox devices setup to use Network Address Book when scanning to email.  It performs anLDAP search and will display list of employee names.  For example:

When searching for Chris, it will display all accounts with the name Chris including disabled accounts in Active Directory.

We are required to keep disabled accounts in Active Directory for X amount of years.  Is there anyway we can hide the disable accounts so, when searches are performed it will not display the disabled accounts in Active Directory?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can move all the disabled accounts to their own OU   The tool ADtidy makes it easy to find all those and move them.
