Report All Share Permissions by User in Windows 2008 AD
Posted on 2010-11-29
We have a Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 file server in a Windows 2008 domain.
We serve a large populate and occasionally I am asked "what does Joe User have access to?"
Rather than look at 10,000 folders to figure this out, I'd like a tool to look at 1 server and produce a report of all folders that Joe User can access.
Since file access is based on group membership, the tool would need to query effective permissions -- not just Joe User's account but every group that Joe User belongs to.
