Extracting ACL Information

There is a utility called Enterprise Security Reporter that will give you the information you need. It's made by Small Wonders Software. It's an excellent tool and will give you a ton of information. They have a fully-functional trial version that you can use for 45 days I believe. It can get complicated if you are trying to get very specific about the information you want. You'll want to know something about Access queries.
I recommend using this tool if you have a complicated directory structure and especially if you have little to no knowledge of the existing security. You can't beat it.

Try showacls.exe from the NT Resource Kit. Definitely not fancy, but very functional. It runs from a command prompt. You can direct the output to a text file and import it to a spreadsheet or database for analysis.

There is a very good (and free) utility by SomarSoft Utilities called DumpACL (I think they may have renamed it to DumpSec). It's a must for your NT toolkit.
Check out www.somarsoft.com
