Q

How can I generate a report of users' AD permissions

Is there some sort of report I can run to find what permissions each user has in Active Directory instead of going to each shared folder?

Is there some sort of report I can run to find what permissions each user has in Active Directory instead of going to each shared folder? I would like to find out with a few easy steps.
There is a tool from SysInternals that does exactly what you want.

There are also some Resource Kit tools like XCACLS.exe that will display file-level information, but not on shares. NET SHARE will also display information on the shares, although it will not display permissions. You could write a fairly simple VBS script to display the information. You could start with the SHARE.VBS that comes with the Resource Kit. You could also find some scripts at the Win32scripting Web site.
