You want to deactivate computer 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 computer accounts will be disabled. You should use the
dsquery first to have a look at the computers!
dsquery computer ou=Lubby-Desktops,DC=lubby,DC=org -inactive 9 -limit 0 |dsmod computer -disabled yes
You should use this script with care and let it run on the part of active directory where no important
servers or desktops have been created!
