Finding Unused accounts

Hi,

I need to find all accounts that have not been used since the 1st of August.

I could finger every user but there is around 1000 users on the box and issuing finger for every user would be time consuming.

Is there an easy way to find them ?
Any tricks or hint would be great !

Thanks,
JP

try the "last" command
Help() { FirstReadManual(urgently); Go_to_it;; }

Re: Finding Unused accounts

Have you considered enabling Enhanced Security? It wouldn't help this time, but it would help if you needed to do something like this in the future. Check out the Security manual.

Feel free to try my perl script for solving this problem: http://users.rcn.com/spiderb/sec/llog.txt

Usage for what you're after:
llog -t 168

The actual value to the -t option will vary depending on when you run it, of course, to be enough days ago for 1 August to be the cut-off.
