Security Audit Software

By cliff680 ·
Does anyone know of a program that will do a security audit on a shared drive?? I just want this program to go through my client's shared drive (Windows 2003 Server) and let me know who has access to what. I can't seem to find anything.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Have you tried the Group Policies selections?

#1 I don't use Windows Server 2003.
but I do do admin on a number of systems. so that said. Look under your Server System 'Properties'-> 'Admanced'-> 'Users', to set who will be the users that you want to alow acess to what. Also in the 'Control Panel', there you should see users and groups somewhere. Open that and check, set, who (as in users and computers) you want to access what. In 'Administrative Tools' -> 'Local Security Policy' you can set different policies as to pass-words, log-ins and use-levels for different users. And you can have many different events logged (Audits).

No, I know how Group Policy works, I'm trying to find a piece of software to run through my shared drive and tell me what the security settings (user access) are on all of the folders.

One of the following tools might help you.
SharEnum: will enumerate all shares in a domain
http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/ShareEnum.html

rmtshare (resource kit): you can specify a share.

These tools will only give you the share permissions though, not the NTFS permissions.

If you need something to give you both share and NTFS permissions you could write a script that enumerates shares and then use (x)cacls.exe to enumerate ntfs permissions

Thanks for steering me int he right direction, I actually found a utility in the Win2003 Resource kit called showacls.exe, I was able to get the permissions on all of my folders inside the shared drive.
