Any tool to find a user-permissions?

By an_it_guy ·
On a Windows2000 File Server, is there anyway that we can find what permissions are assigned to a single user in a directory structure?
The intention is to find this and use it to simplify the process of giving same set of persiossions to a new user to be added. I understand that using Groups is the best way to assign permissions, but apart from that is there any way to get this done easily?
Thanks.

The easy way is with groups. If you individually manipulate settings you stand the risk of making an error that extends all rights to everyone or no rights to everyone. 1 mistake in any permision chain can result in this drastic effect so please just use groups where your changes are monitored for completeness.

Each pattern of permision belongs to 1 group, then assign users to as many groups as they need to be ok

Hope this helps

Could you be more specific on this "CACLs" ? I am not sure about what this is, and I would like to remind you that I this question is in connection with Windows2000 & not NT4.0
Thanks.

Answer #1 is the best way to go. If you must try "ShowAcls /s or /u. This command line tool,along with instructions, is found in Window 2000 Resource Kit.
