Hi,  

I need to do a permissions audit on some file servers, going through each shared folder and reporting on which users or groups have access.  

I found the following script which does a pretty good job of going through all the folders and listing which users and groups have access,

function Get-PathPermissions {
 
param ( [Parameter(Mandatory=$true)] [System.String]${Path} )
 
    begin {
    $root = Get-Item $Path
    ($root | get-acl).Access | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Path" -Value $($root.fullname).ToString() -PassThru
    }
    process {
    $containers = Get-ChildItem -path $Path -recurse | ? {$_.psIscontainer -eq $true}
    if ($containers -eq $null) {break}
        foreach ($container in $containers)
        {
        (Get-ACL $container.fullname).Access | ? { $_.IsInherited -eq $false } | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Path" -Value $($container.fullname).ToString() -PassThru
        }
    }
}
Get-PathPermissions $args[0]


I can then output the result of this script to a CSV file by running the following command:

Get-PathPermissions C:\Temp | Export-Csv "C:\my folder\mycsv.csv"

What I would also like to do is list all the members of groups found and add this as a column to the csv file.  Ideally I'd like to skip listing users of the "Domain Admins" group as this group is always present and doesn't need the users listing out each time.
