How to find old computer accounts on Windows Server

How can I see computers that are not connected on AD but have account. I had created some account before and there were many systems replaced in the meantime. Now the issue lies here with computer accounts. I am having around 60 computers on the network while the accounts on AD is above 100. How can I find which one is active and which is not. So that I can remove the old records. I want some help to cleanup unwanted accounts.

You can do that by a simple command. Now if you want to find which accounts are not logged in from last 5 weeks you will need to use this command - dsquery computer -inactive 5 -limit 0. There is another utility called as DSQUERY. It is another great way of finding un-used account from the computer. I am giving you a link below that gives you detail information on using the command.
