The Setup
Is there a way of tracking when user objects were created? We want to find out what user accounts were created in the last year.

The Solution
You can query against the creation time stamp attribute. Calculate the NDS time of the date you want to use as your search criterion, then do a comparative search. Here is an example of dumping out the admin object's creation time stamp via LDAP:

ldapsearch -h 111.111.111.111 -D "cn=admin,o=org" -w n0v3ll 
-b "cn=admin,o=org" objectClass=* createTimeStamp
