Inactive PC accounts

Can someon please refresh my memory? Isn't the default for AD to push a PC/laptop account offline if it hasn't logged in, authenticated itself on thr domain, 90 days? I know there are ways to do a query from the cli to find out which systems haven't logged in a specific amount of time too, but I am looking at the defaults here from MS.

I would also imagine that is if the system was renamed, the SID would change, so the old system name would get diasabled too?

Thanks in advance!

    The PC password is 30 days by default. The user account disables after 90 days. And no, renaming a pc shouldn't change a sid or guid.
    Decide what to be and go be it.

    Like devilbane said, the SID should stay the same. It's very convenient when transitioning one existing role to simply another person.
