Reporting user and group permissions

I need to create a report that details the user and group permissions on a certain directory. Is there a Novell utility to print this information to a file, or a third party utility that will do this?

Any help is appreciated.

Try poking around the Netware shareware web site, specifically this sub-page:

There are a number of freebie and shareware utilities, some of which may do the trick.

Have you tried using the rights.exe command line utility and dumping the output to text file?
A quick view of this info can be gotten by:

Right click in Explorer on the directory, then select Properties.  Click the Netware rights tab, then the Inherited Rights and Filters.  You will get a list of users, groups and all effective rights.

I looked at rights.exe, but it did not look like it would solve my problem. I have a directory structure that I need to be able to document the permissions on (the root and all subdirectories, and there are lots of subdirectories) for all users and groups. Dave, I appreciate the comment, but I know how to look at them, right now I need to run a report on them. I am assuming that I am going to have to go to a third party, bu I was hoping there was a built in utility somewhere that I wasn't aware of yet. By the way, if it matters, we are using Netware 4.11 on the server in question.

Thanx again
Very simple solution:
download tback3.exe from  It is a utility that is supposed to make a backup of your trustees per volume.  It outputs that to "trustees.bat", which is an excellent and simple (and free!) source for the information you're after.

I'm giving the points to Dave. I found a utility on this website called Trust4x that basically does the same thing that the utility that Jim suggested does. (I couldn't get tback3.exe to work at all!) It's not really what I wanted (not very pretty, but I can import it into Excel and create a report from there.) Blows my mind that Novell doesn't have some sort of built-in way to do this.

Thanx to all for the suggestions
