Documenting NT Security

Posted on 2005-05-11
Last Modified: 2013-12-04
I'm preparing to migrate a domain currently running under an NT 4.0 PDC (with and exchange 5.5 server) to a new 2003 SBS server.  I am hoping to document all of the existing securtity (9 servers worth) at the directory level.  I'm going to start from scratch with the security setup but would like to have a means to see how things were before the migration.

I've tried using Hyena, which has gotten me really close.  It does a great job and exports the dir list with all the security to an access database, but any permissions marked "Special" just say "Special."

Can anyone suggest a tool or method that can help me with this?

Thanks in advance,

    I think dumpsec is one of the best ways- haven't used it in a few years though Looks like it's from the same folks as hyena

    This script requires perl, such as active state's to be installed, but is very effective
    You may also want to try the evaluation version of this software:
