Hi,
I have Windows 2000 server, and of coures, groups for security. The question is: Is there any way to know where each group has permissions? Is there anything in Windows 2000 server? Or is there any third party utility? Thank you.

You can try AccessEnum (http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/accessenum.shtml) from Sysinternals or DumpSec (http://www.somarsoft.com/) from Somarsoft; both have the ability of going down a directory tree, listing only differences in the permissions for subdirectories. That makes for (sort of ...) concise listings.

Thank you cfairley and oBdA, But what I need is that I want to know every group what folders he has permissions on and not what every directory has group permissions. Sorry and thank you for the answer. I'll be gald to see more answers from you. Thank you again.

You can try that with perms.exe from the W2k Resource Kit:
Perms.exe: File Access Permissions per User
http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/tools/existing/perms-o.asp

Or check if ShowAccs.exe (you'll find it under "SIDWalker") from the W2k Support Tools might work for you; this creates a csv file for a given directory which you can import into Excel or whatever to analyze it further.
If you haven't installed the Support Tools yet, do NOT install them from the CD. The current version is here:
Windows 2000 SP4 Support Tools
http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/downloads/servicepacks/SP4/supporttools.asp

Thank you oBdA. I tried ShowAccs.exe and it worked. Although I had to do some extra work, but it was useful. What I did was importing the .csv file to MS Access and then by queries I did what I really wanted. Thank you again.
