  • How to determine file rights

    I have a 2003 server in an AD environment where individual user accounts have been granted explicit rights at the folder\file level. There were never any groups created. Needles to say this has gotten very messy. How can find out who has rights (automate it) to what folders\files on that file server? Any suggestions\tools would be a great deal of help

    Have a look at this thread but I fear you have a lot of tedious work ahead of you.

      Hi.
      Take a look at this tool: Hyena. It is not free, but it's a "must have"...

      Good luck and keep us posted.

        How about
        CACLS *.* /T /C >C:\rights.txt
        from the cmd line. Run it from the root of each volume. After it finishes, have a look at c:\rights.txt. It may not be pretty, but it's free and might help. See CACLS /? for help
        Don't know how you would get out share permissions from the cmd line though!
        TIA
