    You can also look for the events 4768 on your domain controllers for that user. It will tell you all the machines (IP addresses) from which the user has entered its credentials. It will tell me more than just interactive logon though as a runas or a script for example could also generated those. But that could still be useful to spot where accounts are used in general.
