From the above link :

Import-Module activedirectory
[int]$ComputerPasswordAgeDays = 90
IF ((test-path "c:\temp") -eq $False) { md "c:\temp" }
$ExportFile = "c:\temp\InactiveWorkstations.csv"
$ComputerStaleDate = (Get-Date).AddDays(-$ComputerPasswordAgeDays)
$InactiveWorkstations = Get-ADComputer -filter { (passwordLastSet -le $ComputerStaleDate) -and (OperatingSystem -notlike "*Server*") -and (OperatingSystem -like "*Windows*") } -properties Name, DistinguishedName, OperatingSystem,OperatingSystemServicePack, passwordLastSet,LastLogonDate,Description
$InactiveWorkstations | export-csv $ExportFile

Pretty good! Used the attribute name from the first article in conjunction with dsquery tool to get info about all servers in a domain: dsquery * -scope subtree -attr "cn" "operatingSystem" "operatingSystemServicePack" "pwdLastSet" -filter "(&(objectclass=computer)(objectcategory=computer)(operatingSystem=Windows Server*))" -limit 10000 -uco >C:\output.txt – Volodymyr M.

Perhaps, it is worth mentioning what values returned by pwdLastSet attribute are not human readable at all. Here is an article on how to convert these values into human readable Converting LDAP dates – Volodymyr M. Nov 5 '12 at 14:34
