OLDCMP – Checking what OS’s you are running on the domain


Windows XP

A handy tool for checking the age of the computers on your network;

This can be run as below;

run oldcmp -report -sort OS -age 0 -maxage 50

This will give you a HTML report of all the machines that have logged into the domain in the last 50 days.

 

This will be particularly useful since the Windows XP and Server 2003 retirement as of next year and allow admins and decision makers to make an informed decision on the process/budget required to bypass this as an issue before it arises.
