    Is it possible within Active Directory to find out the date and time in which an object was created? I have 2 users with the same name and need to find out which one was created first?

    Cheers in advance

    Not seen anything that shows created date, but you can show the modified date, which may or may not be useful...
    Click on view then add or remove columns, add the 'modified' column and there you go !

    Having just looked at an AD, click on the object tab of the users properties and both dates are there

    AD administration should NOT let you create duplicate user accounts. It is probably that one of them has a different email address or local alias. While in the AD administration app go to View > Choose columns and add "Modified" this should give you an idea of when the account was at least last modified.

    Thanks for the help guys,

    I know you cannot create duplicate accounts, its just they are spelt differently but i know its just an admin error, its sorted now though
