How can I list all folders accessible by a Windows 2003 AD group?  Ideally, I'd also like to see the specific permissions the group has on each folder as well.  I believe the xcacls.vbs provides the information required, but would be quite a tedious manual process to collect this information for an entire volume, etc.

To enumerate local groups access permissions over the folders you could try this one: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897332.aspx

However, you seem asking about AD group permissions. The standard practice is to manage AD groups access via shared folders / share permissions. NTFS access permissions usually are being set to the local groups.

Hope it helps.

AccessChk is a better tool than AccessEnum for checking a specific group's permissions.

A collegue directed me to use the "Perms" command included in the Windows resource kit.   This provided me with some of the information I was looking for.  I will check out AccessEnum as well.
