Hi People,

How can I check the attributes of the computer object and identify the last logged on user.

I can do it manually:

Open AD Users and Computers
Right click the object
Click the attributes tab
*optional* filter for attributes with values
Look for the value:  last logged on user

Thanks in advance,

Assuming you don't have the AD modules, the last program linked on this page (PSLimitedLastlogon.ps1):

http://www.rlmueller.net/Last%20Logon.htm

will document lastLogonTimeStamp for all users specified in an input file (pre-Windows 2000 logon names). The output is comma delimited, just redirect the output to a csv file.
