Tracing back where the Domain & Enterprise Administrator account is used ?

Hi,

Is there any way to trace back where the Domain & Enterprise Administrator account is used in an AD domain ?

I need to get the list of where it is used before I rename the AD account and change the password in my company.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

you can also check the lastlogon attribute for the accounts to see the last time they were used.
you can dump out the services for each server to make sure the accounts aren't being used to run services.
One last resort (if you aren't in a critical environment) is to temporarily disable each account and see who calls.

Somehow the active directory functionality level is still on Windows Server 2003. So does that feature still available ?

I don't have SCCM in the domain.

not sure which functionality you are specifically referring to, but both auditing and the lastlogon information are available in 2003.

Ok so what's the powershell script to query that on each AD DC servers ?
