Do you mean locating what permissions are assigned to each group in the file system and Active Directory? You can do this using Hyena: http://www.systemtools.com/hyena/

The Sysinternals tools are useful especially

AccessChk
This tool shows you the accesses the user or group you specify has to files, Registry keys or Windows services.

AccessEnum
This simple yet powerful security tool shows you who has what access to directories, files and Registry keys on your systems. Use it to find holes in your permissions.

ShareEnum
Scan file shares on your network and view their security settings to close security holes.
