Comprehensive view of Effective NTFS Permissions - Active Directory
Posted on 2010-11-24
We have a file server within our Server 2008 active directory where we'd like to find the effective permissions for each folder/file for each user/group.
Instead of using the built-in effective permissions tool or something like SolarWinds Permission Analyzer (which is about the same, just a little faster and more thorough), we're hoping to utilize some tool or build a script where we can provide the default top-level share, and it will progress down through the nested folders and files and give us one gigantic log of who has access to what and why on each file and folder.
Maybe nothing like this exists, but management asked for a Visio-type flow chart of who has access where and what group/explicit user permission is giving them that access.
