Auditing Access Rights on Windows Server 2003

Hi.

I am looking for a software tool that will allow me to take a snapshot of the Win2003 SBS server and see which users can access what. I know I can view individual files and folders directly with Effective Permissions.  I have a client with a server that needs to know who can see what. Anybody know whether MS make such one or there is a 3rd party that does the trick?

Please advise.
Greg

PS: For those of you who know Netware, there was a command line tool called TLIST that read every user and what they had rights to, which was then output to a file for examination.

type the following at the command line:

cacls c:\* >c:\secreport.txt

This will give you a text based report on all directories on the c: drive.

You can also download Dumpsec which has a few more options for listing permissions setup (free).

Hope this helps
