We use a vbscript that constantly monitor the DC for events and dump
those into a database. Also, if you have a bit of money to spend,
NetPro's ChangeAuditor AD suite is invaluable for monitoring realtime AD
changes.

Subject: Retrieving a User's Last Logon in Windows NT4

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to find a way to retrieve all Users last logon over multiple
NT4 Domains in order to reconcile inactive accounts. From a Security
standpoint, you never want stale accounts active in your system. So,
does anyone know of a way to do this?

Now in Active Directory Win2K Server, you can do an ldapsearch on the
lastLogon attrib. In Win2K3 Server, you can do an ldapsearch for
lastLogonTimestamp. Is there anything similar to this in NT4? What is
the attrib called? If not, how would you go about obtaining a User's
last logon?

In my current environment, I do have a Trust setup between NT4 and
Active Directory Domains, however, I don't believe you can retrieve a
User's last logon from NT4 thru Active Directory, unless I'm wrong.

I've seen a few VBScript's on Google that can do this and have seen
Dameware NT Utilities provide a similar export functionality, but I'm
looking for any other suggestions as well.

Your expertise is much appreciated.

Thanks!
