rebuild of drive permissions and shared folders

I wanted to document the present shared permissions on both the drive and shared folders, but what's the most efficient way to accomplish this task?

There is a vbscript/powershell that can do it.
Collects ACL security settings of the folder structure as well as share listing.

On windows 2008, you can use DFS and dfs-replication to get the data and ownership/permissions from one server to another.  Using domain based share simplifies future server updates/upgrades but requires an AD environment.

This guide gives some good info and a great working VBS script for this kind of thing.
