We recntly accuired a company where they have an win server 2003 Enterprise.
Is there a way to see in AD which users has access to what.

There are 40 pc's and about 72 users.
Is there an esay way to see which user can access what share and from what pc users can access?
Can this be displayed in a list or a table or graphical in an easy way?
I know you can check premission on every folder/file but this is a huge time consuming task.
Please advice us in this matter

I guess the FreeBSD zone isn't the right one. The rest is. Don't know why it is in the FreeBSD zone as well. You can change it.

Altough KCTS did provide me with a good result I'm still looking for a way to view wich your can access what shares.

The tools provide let you select a directory and then see who can access this directory.
But I want to slect a user and see in what directory's or shares he can access.

So, I select for instance. User bob who works in the financial dep. And I can see what user bob can access. I als want to select user Maurice. Who works in the warehouse and see what share's Maurice can access.

I don't want to select a folder let's say
 and the see that this can be accessed by Danny, Freddy, Wilma, Ronny, Bruno, Johnny, BOB

I want to select user BOB

And see Bob has access to

Then select user Maurice

And see Maurice has access to

\\OURSERVER\share3 only

Thanks for a solution
