How would I generate a report that list ACLs and NTFS folder permissions on home directories?

My boss is asking that I generate a list or report from our home directory servers (2k3 systems), that will provide ACLs and or NTFS permissions detailing who has access to what. We want to run an audit on our home directories to make sure all ACLs are similiar that Administrators have Full rights, Systems have full rights, and the user who the home directory belongs to have up to modify rights on there home folder. So generating a list that will show anything out of the norm would help as well. Max points granted.

I found a tool called Hyena that did the job.

A simple utility for this is Sysinternal's AccessEnum. It's available here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897332

The way home directories are set on my network (see attachment). every user has a home folder with up to modify rights only, and ADMINISTRATOR and SYSTEM has full control of each user's home directory folder. We want to keep in within that standards. As of late, we noticed that some user's home directory folder can be accessed by someone else (non-admin). Being that we have hundreds of users home directory folder, we need a tool that would just audit, and let us know if there is something out of the norm or standards. Maybe if there is a command we can run natively on the server like icacls commands, that would help. Something that will produce a report that is not granular.          Doc1.docx

AccessEnum will dump the user rights assignments in to a printable/reviewable format. If you want something customized to your exact needs, I recommended creating script (VBScript, PowerShell, etc.) to review and report on any non-standard permissions. Basically it's recurse through all subfolders (one or multiple levels, as needed), retrieve and check rights skip over administrator, system, username. Report any other entries in the permissions list, Next folder until subfolder list is complete.

Another possiblity is to use something like SetACL or icalcs in a batch file or such. To set the permissions as desired. This won't let you audit them but if ran on a regular basis it will reset them to a known state.
