Why using Powershell when a simple commandline can do the job?

dsquery computer -stalepwd

400 -limit 5000


you can pipe the result to the next command to disable, move or whatever you want…

You could also take a look at the below article which helps to find, disable or move inactive accounts.

Here is an article for managing Inactive Active Directory Accounts Using PowerShell.

However, in order to move the disabled computer accounts to a specific OU, get help from this Active Directory Cleanup solution: https://www.lepide.com/lepideauditor/active-directory-cleanup.html

Here's a PowerShell cleanup script that deals with computer accounts as well. You can take the parts you need from it: http://www.adaxes.com/blog/cleanup-active-directory-with-powershell.html
