Is there any built in app (preferred) or 3rd party software for a 2003 SBS Small Business server that will allow you to:
1. Look at a user in the AD and see all the permissions they have to all the folders on the server they have permission to.
2. Copy the permissions of one user and give it to another.

Thanks

This looks like very good solution, although I am looking for something less expensive or possibly built in. Is there any? Thanks sirbounty.

None that I'm aware of - but this is what we use in my company.
Perhaps some other experts will have some other suggestions...I'm not familiar with any comparable free tools...

This is why you don't usually want to configure individual user permissions on a folder or files and instead always use Security Groups.

At any rate, you can use the command line ShowACLs entry (in the Windows Server Resource Kit) to enumerate file ownership.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/158388

Once you've done that... you probably should modify the permissions to a Security Group and add both users to that group.
