Identify the SQL Server Service Accounts using tSQL.

Every so often you are going to need to check the SQL Server service accounts.  Maybe you've just taken on a new customer, or you've inherited someone else's SQL inventory, and you don't know what accounts the services are running under.  You can remote into the servers one at a time, and run SQL Server Configuration Manager, but --  that is kind of time consuming.  Use this piece for a much quicker way to find your service accounts.  You can even run it across a CMS (Central Management Server) Group, and collect this data from all of your servers with one execution.

         ds.servicename [ServiceName],
         ds.startup_type_desc [StartupType],
         ds.status_desc [ServiceStatus],
         ds.service_account [ServiceAccount],
         ds.filename [EXEFileName],
         ds.last_startup_time [LastStartup]
         sys.dm_server_services ds;

There are some other values from sys.dm_server_services as well, but I've just returned a few quick details on the service accounts.  See this for more details on this DMV:
