Retrieve the Usage of AD Security group

Retrieve the Usage of AD Security group
I have some active directory security  groups.
I need kind of a tool that will show me where the security group has been used.

I remember there was even a graphical tool that I used in the past that can do that, but don't remember the name of it.


Anyone knows about these type of tools that can do this task?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

You could use Somarsoft's DumpSEC on each server with an export to comma (or tab) delimited format and use Excel to focus exclusively on the group you're looking for.

It' s a tool where you type the group name and it will give you its members and where it has permissions.

in other words how can you tell a certain AD user group is used for a certain purpose: Share permissions or printer permissions, etc..........?

The only way to know that is to audit every share, folder, file and printer. There's no centralized method in AD that holds this type of information.

DumpSEC can do this kind of auditing for your servers and printers.
