Hi everyone,

Does anyone know of a way via powershell or an AD tool that can identifiy a user account that has permissions on several fileshares across my domain ?

I have a user account that I need to identify which shres it has access to and check each server to find out if the account is a member of the local admin group on the servers.

Any help much appreciated.

I think AccessEnum (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897332.aspx) from Microsoft.

The second BETA version of my NTFS permissions reporter app is now available to download: http://cjwdev.wordpress.com/2011/12/16/ntfs-permissions-reporter-beta-2-released

The tool used here is Exporter Pro, which can be licensed for $99 per admin
