You want to deactivate user accounts after 9 weeks or 63 days
You can use the dsquery tool in combination with dsmod. The following can be copy and pasted in a
command line and can be scheduled. Please note, these accounts will be disabled. You should use
the dsquery first to have a look at the accounts!
dsquery user ou=Lubby-Users,DC=lubby,DC=org -inactive 9 -limit 0 |dsmod user -disabled yes
You should use this script with care and let it run on the part of active directory where no
administrative or service accounts have been created!
