Hi,

One of our domain admins has changed a service account password (yeah I know!). Luckily only on one account but I am wondering if there is an easy way I can find out  all the services that this account is dependant on.

In a word no - just look in the event log for services that have failed to start

I have run this script against every server and manage to get the info I need.
strComputer = ""
Set objWMIService = GetObject _
    ("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colServices = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * From Win32_Service")
For Each objService in colServices
    Wscript.Echo objService.Name, objService.StartName
Next


Thanks
