cleaning up Active Directory

chrism

is there a third-party app or MS app which you can run to identify and
cleanup Active Directory objects
which are old or not in use anymore ?

We need to give our AD database a spring cleaning.

Thanks for any help.

If you are running in Windows Server 2003 native mode you can use dsquery
* -inactive [days] or dsrm command line tools.

thanks for the tip. I'll remember that.
Currently we have a Win2k AD environment.

BTW - it will work for user account objects as well. All you need to do is
to change the filter....
