Find inactive accounts (users or computers)

Background / Value

Inactive accounts can be used for data theft and manipulation without being detected. Since most inactive accounts are remnants of past employees, they are often a symptom of a communication problem between HR and IT. ARM displays all inactive accounts in Active Directory. You can delete or deactivate old and redundant accounts.
