Reviewing access on network shares

I am currently tasked with reviewing who has access to network shares here. Is there an easy way to audit what users/groups have what access (read, write, modify, full...) to shares? There are shares on several servers here, all of them running Windows Server 2003.

porkramen,

You could try srvcheck, part of the Windows 2003 resource kit.  It does not, however, display hidden shares.  I no longer have it, but if you can find it, there was an article in the premiere issue of TechNet magazine that covered listing shares and permissions.

Good Luck!

Looks great!

I have a question though! If I have a share like:

\\SERVER\SHARE01\DIRECTORY01\
\\SERVER\SHARE01\DIRECTORY02\

and the security varies from directory01 to directory02 how do I account for that?

Try Sysinternal's ShareEnum (http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/shareenum.shtml), AccessEnum (http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/accessenum.shtml), and Somarsoft's DumpSec (http://www.somarsoft.com).
In general, it's easiest to manage if you set share permissions to Full Control for Everyone in general, then use NTFS permissions to lock down the directories. Share permissions are remnants from file systems that don't support security.

You could use the native cacls command.  This will display what group or user has access and the level of permission.  For example, from a command prompt, type "cacls c:\*".

I use dumpsec which allows auditing of file/folder permissions, users/groups, and some other great things. You get nice reports that can be printed or saved.
