Identifying account used to join pc to domain

Is there's any way where I can identify what account was used to join a particular computer into the domain?
Thanks!

Hi menendeza,
Open ADUC; from the View menu, activate "Advanced settings". Go to the computer object in ADUC, right-click it, open the Properties, switch to the security tab. Click the Advanced button, switch to the Owner tab. The owner should be the one who joined the machine to the domain. If this owner account is used by several of your technicians, then there's exactly nothing you can do.

Thank you PeteLong
I just followed your instructions but is giving me the domain admins group instead of the profile used. Each technician has its own admin profile and that's what I was hoping to see. Did I miss anything maybe?

Thanks!

Thats all you will find - Im afraid, even a user can join a machine to a domain (though only ten machines)
