Script to check multiple servers which services are using specific accounts


A client wanted to rename a specific account, but they were afraid to change this specific account because it could be used as a service account for several services running on a number of servers. Because I didn’t want to logon to all those servers manually I decided to create a powershell script.

 

Hereby the source code :

 

This script uses a inputfile containing the servernames. You can use for example use rvtools or an WMI query to create this file.

After running the script the output is as follows :

services_export

I imported this file into excel and from now it’s easy to check for accounts being used etc.

Make sure to run powershell in elevated mode and don’t forget the set-executionpolicy unrestricted option.
