Goodbye Admin32, Hello .......... what?

By keith.phillips ·
I've had to change from Novell 5.1 to Win2K server OS.

I used Admin32 to view what rights to folders/files a user was assigned and what groups were they a member of.

Using Active Directory in Win2K, I can create groups and see what groups a person is assigned to but what do you use to keep track of what rights are assigned to the AD Group?

Right now I'm tracking everything manually via spreadsheet. There has to be something out there comparable to Novell's "Admin32", isn't there?

What you are looking for is the "Resultant Set of Policies" (RsoP) add-on to Windows 2003. [Don't despair -- you can also use it on a Windows 2000 domain, but the tools need to be run on a Windows XP Professional computer.]

You can download the tool, which is a part of the GPMC suite from Microsoft at: (remove any spaces)
Follow the link for "Download the GPMC with Service Pack 1". There are also some introductory papers you can download there.

Here is a decent article to read: (remove any spaces)

On the XP machine you run the tools on, you will also need to download the .Net framework, and make sure the XP machine has Service Pack 1.
