Find an Active Directory Account where it is used.

Find an Active Directory Account where it is used.

we have some AD accounts , they look like service accounts. I wonder if there is a way to find out on which computers they are used.

Thanks

I used ADReports by ManageEngine to help me with this. It's a great tool to use... can be installed in Windows Workstation and collects lots of good information from Active Directory.

Give it as shot, 30 days free then limited features after that.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

The company I work for has a product that can do this for you called SystemTools Hyena. For this one you can run a Services report on all of your computers, then use Microsoft Excel to search for the users you are trying to identify. Once you identify where they are being used, Hyena can also help if you need to do anything with that information such as change the account or even password used by those services.

Click on a few test computers in Hyena ( you can multi-select in the right-hand window so double-click on an OU or the Computers object ), then go to Tools > Exporter Pro > Export From Selected Objects. Click the Settings button and enable the Services export by clicking on it in the right-window and clicking the icon between those two windows. Click Close and then Start Export. When it finishes running you can click the Open With button and choose Microsoft Excel from the list.
