How do I determine what permissions a Group has if any in my AD tree?
I would like to do a global search of my group on the entire domain and see where it has permissions for any shares.

You can try the ShareEnum tool from Windows Sysinsternals http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897442

There is not a built-in tool to query this information from AD. That type of information is not stored in AD, it is a property of the share itself as to what the permissions are and not something stored in AD
