Identify administrator account use for server/desktop services

I am trying to identify one of my retired admin (user) account and disable the account. But before I disable the account, I need to scan my domain if his account was used on any of the server or desktop services. Is there a tool or scrip that I can  use to scan my network and identify the devices where his account was used. Please advise.

Thank you
Collin

You can use this solution from scripting guy to show all services and then see if this user is set to run any services https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/heyscriptingguy/2012/02/15/the-scripting-wife-uses-powershell-to-find-service-accounts/

Lionel, thank you. this will only give me to log in to each of the devices I know and run the power shell. I need to be able to scan the network for the unknown. I'm trying to scan my network to see if I missed any device that has his account setup to run the services.

Sorry then I don't know how to help -- only thing I do is to disable the account and see if anything goes wrong but that can be a tricky and dangerous approach to take.

Hi expert, Is there a tool or another solution to identify the domain admin/user account if use for any services or task scheduler in the network?

Please advise.
