pwdLastSet, it's also valid in Windows server.

It's in micro second I think this it's since 1/1/1600. I use a perl 
script to format it so you have to remove 11644473600 to get the number 
of second (roughly because I think I don't count the number of leap 
seconds) since 1/1/1900.

Basically it's:

gmtime(pwdLastSet / 1000000 - 11644473600).
