removing old machine accounts



we have large dynamic environment. Lots of hires and fires and every time we
have just been reimaging the workstations with a differnent name leaving the
old mahcine account in AD. Is there a way to automate the removal of old
machine accounts from ad using a script or somethings or do I need to
manually verify the workstation no longer exists under the old name and then
manually remove the machine account?

I am going to make a suggestion to you. You really need to consider sending
me about $500 for this suggestion and Joe Richards about $2000 for
developing this utility! ;-)

Go over to and take a look at the free WIN32 C++
utilities. Down toward the bottom is oldcmp. This is your tool. It will
do all that you need. I would suggest that you create the report in DHTML.
It is actually quite nice.
