Anyone have a script that can be run on the server console that will report back which of the local services use the domain administrator account for 'log on as' ?   ideally, the value one searches on would be a prompted input in the script ("please enter domain\username to match")  

or even better, it would simply output the username used for all local services to a csv then I could check after the fact. (service name, starts-in-path, "log on as" user, startup-type.

would be useful in planning for high-level account password changes.

bonus: run on one server, and prompt the user for hostnames to query, or pull those hostnames from a text file (host1 <cr> host2 <cr>) assuming the user you ran the script on host0 had the rights to query the other hosts.
