PowerShell is a powerful scripting environment for Windows which can be used for this type of maintenance but first you all you need to install the Active Directory Powershell tools:

1. Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Windows PowerShell -> Windows PowerShell

2. At the command prompt type:

Import-module ActiveDirectory

3. Once the module install is complete, confirm its available by running:

Get-Module -ListAvailable | select-string -pattern "Active"

Once you have installed the Active Directory PowerShell commands you may use the following syntax to search for computers which haven’t logged in for 6 or more months:

get-adcomputer -properties lastLogonDate -filter * | where { $_.lastLogonDate -lt (get-date).addmonths(-6) } | sort Name | FT Name,LastLogonDate

To delete old computer accounts use the same syntax and pipe it through the “Remove-ADComputer” script:

get-adcomputer -properties lastLogonDate -filter * | where { $_.lastLogonDate -lt (get-date).addmonths(-6) } | Remove-ADComputer

To find Active Directory user account which haven’t logged in for 6 or more months use:

Search-ADAccount -accountdisabled | where {$_.lastlogondate -lt (get-date).addmonths(-6)} | FT Name,LastLogonDate

To delete old user accounts use the same syntax and pipe it through the “Remove-ADUser” script:

Search-ADAccount -accountdisabled | where {$_.lastlogondate -lt (get-date).addmonths(-6)} | Remove-ADUser
