What tool can assist in an Active Directory audit?

Is there a tool that can assist us in an Active Directory audit? We want to know each user's directory access to the network, what groups they belong to and what rights they have in each directory.

Aelita's Enterprise Suite is one of the best third-party tools for doing this sort of thing. Not only can you audit the status of AD objects, but take corrective action immediately: modify users, groups, permissions, shares, and perform changes either individually or en masse. The program has one main drawback -- the different tools in the suite are not integrated -- but it also allows you to undo your work, which is in itself extremely valuable.
