Hello,

I have a CSV file which contains list of decommissioned computer names (CN).  

Is it possible to list if they still have an computer account in Active Directory?

"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.

yes,
You can use Powershell to either output a list or do a lookup for a specific computer.
Use the Get-adcomputer powershell commandlet.
