I have an AD environment and i want to find all the computers/applications/services that are configured to use a particular account. Kind of like using the accountlockstatus tool but in this scenario the account is not locked out. I just want to know which resource is using it to authenticate.

Thanks

There are two things Authentication and Authorization.

You can see authentication events on PDC and DC which Account has used to logon, Ideally you can use EventComMbt tool to query all the DC for logon event id.

Authorization. This will be based on NTFS permission. For this you need to enable Auditing. Then you can analyze the logs to find out who has accessed the files/folders.

EventComMBT is a utility that can tell you based on the event id found in the security logs across ur domain controllers.
