I came accross a problem at my new position where everyone seems to to know Domain admin password. Obviously password can be changed but problem is who ever orginally setup the enviornment here used domain admin account for services on various servers. Before I change the password I have to identify all  the services running using domain admin account. I know that I can go to each server and check services running using domain admin account but it will be extremely time consuming for 500 plus servers. Is ther any utility or tool  I can use to identify services on all domain member servers using Domain Admin account.

Check your DCs logs to see each instance of the account logging in, then check the logon type to determine if it's an interactive logon(at the console) or not.
