Windows 7: Is there a simple way to look up the login history of a specific user?

Is there a simple way to look up the login history of a specific user?

I need to find a way to look up and create a log of the login history of a specific user to find all machines he has logged into that are in our domain. Is there a simple way to do this, such as some DOS commands or batch file? Thanks.

The information would be in the Security section of the Event Viewer of a domain controller. But it will only exist if appropriate auditing is enabled and it isn't by default.
