Active directory Reporting tool ?

Good day friends!

I am looking to get detailed reporting on our ever growing active directory to start cleaning up in near future.
Although we have OUs created and organized as much as possible I am looking for detailed reporting.
We are on Office365 Hybrid setup.

What I am looking for is:

- List of account sorted by their object types
- Should report admin/servers inbuilt accounts.
- If possible, last used dated and time. Meaning when was the account last logged on or used
- May be categorize this report by type of objects
- Should display AD Contact objects at various spots
- Any other use full information that will help us plan Active directory reorganization
- If this report is graphical and easy to view that would be very helpful.
- List of disabled accounts
- Obviously has to be "trusted" application that I can install on our domain controller for this reporting.

This reporting with help us:

- Get rid of accounts that we no longer need
- Organize our AD properly
- Rename many of our existing service accounts, city wise etc.

Let me know if you are able to point me in right direction for this reporting.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Give Hyena a close look.  Hyena's been around for 20 years now, and can do anything in Active Directory, assuming the information you want is there.  We have videos on some of its more complex features, and if you get into trouble, just open a support case, and we'll tell how to do what you want.  You can install it anywhere you want as well, including a client computer connected to your domain.  

While Hyena can be used to view and report anything in Active Directory in a variety of ways, it also can be used to manage Active Directory completely as it is essentially a replacement for Microsoft's management tools.

You can check LepideAuditor to auditing and monitoring needs of Active Directory. It shows changes with detailed reports of users' activities such as logon logoff date and time etc. Also, it can help you in manage inactive accounts as it provides list of all disabled accounts and allows them to move them to separate OUs. It keeps track of health of your Active Directory as well.
I'd check out ADManager Plus from ManageEngine. A lot of built in reports.
