Hello team,

I'm not a VB expert.  What I'm looking for is a VB script that when you enter a path and folder, it will out put those users and groups that have access to that folder.

If you have any help or recommendations I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

John

Does it have to be a script? AccessChk from Sysinternals will do the trick:

And if you like the GUI: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897332.aspx

I'll check this out.  No it doesn't have to be a script as long as it is easy for any admin to run and produce for audit purpose.  Thanks.. John

NTFSPermissions reporter is another good one that is free    http://www.cjwdev.co.uk/Software/NtfsReports/Info.html

dumpsec is an old school program that also works but give the others a try first.

Thanks

You can use a program from SolarWinds called Active Directory Permissions Analyzer which will display all of the permissions for Shared folders and also NTFS permissions as well.

Active Directory Permissions Analyzer - http://www.solarwinds.com/products/freetools/permissions_analyzer_for_active_directory/

If you want to use powershell to accomplish this you can also use the below syntax to accomplish this as well...

read-host "enter your network location here" | get-acl | fl

Open in new window


Use the above code and press enter. It will ask for the network path, enter it in and it will provide the permissions for all of the users that have ACL's associated to the directory.

Sorry for the slow response.  As normal everything has gone crazy and I was traveling.  The wonderful cold, snowy weather hasn't helped.

Thank you all for your input.  The Solarwind product was the right price and did the trick.  Thanks Will for your help.
