Instead, what you have to do is figure that out one server at a time. You can go to a given single server, go to Computer Management > Shared Folders > Sessions, and you can look it up that way.
But this is even more important in some ways (for instance, with job terminations) when you need to determine immediately where is this specific user, what are all the computers where this user is potentially logged on, and you have to get him off your network.
It can also be about a resource contention issue: if a resource is currently locked by a user but that user is not at his usual workstation, a System Administrator cannot raise him on the phone or whatever to get him off.
