Find out what time computer was last found on the domain
We recently had a laptop stolen from our office over the weekend. I am trying to determine approximately what time the laptop was stolen. It was on the network and powered on so there should be some active directory information for the machine. I just don't know how to go about retrieving the info. Any help is most appreciated. Thanks, ca

Hi ca, Was the laptop being managed by SCE? If so, you may be able to look at it in the Monitoring->Computers view, and see what time the last state change event was.

Hi ca, For more information about quering last logon time ,we can get the time in AD database. There is an attribute named lastLogon for each computer account. However, it is in a binary format and you need to convert it to a friendly Date/Time format. There are some scripts. Convert binary data to decimal http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/transactsql/thread/d34685b9-deba-464f-a977-df24f53bdcf6/
