Actually I want to list out all the inactive users(windows) which are not able to login into the OS & henceforth they are not able to connect the SQL Server but they are still alive in the SQL Server as records.


This is possible. Run this:
sp_validatelogins

Good shout - I wasn't aware of that stored procedure. I don't know how it handles logins that have been disabled in AD, though.

As far as I know, AD doesn't run on a SQL Server database. Here's a link on how to create a linked server to your AD server.

Thanks for your reply.

I have a user whose Login account is disabled in OS Level & the user is still valid user in SQL Server Level but the sp_validatelogins procedure is unable to find this user.

Both of you are right.
sp_validatelogins doesn't list the logins that have been DISABLED in AD.
It only lists the loigns that are DELETED in AD.

One more thing which I want to ask again:-

If the users(Windows Logins) are located in a single machine where the SQL Server exits then what should be the procedure.

Kindly reply.

So local Windows account instead of domain accounts? Exactly the same principle, except that the linked server process won't work. You'll have to search to find out whether it's possible to link to the local users and groups directory.
