List all shares/permissions for Server 2003

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Is there a tool that will look at a server and report all
the folders' share and security permissions. I need to
rebuild a server and don't really want to look at a few
hundred folders to determine their shares and permissions

I have to list all the permissions by share is their a tool that can do this for me.

There might be a few niche tools to generate a report of folder ACL's, unfortunately I doubt it is free/dirt cheap.

You could give this VB script a shot. Link

in linux there's a showmount command to see shared folders.

[root@foorbar]# showmount -e 172.16.0.1
Export list for 172.16.0.1:
/opt *
/opt/diskclone *
/opt/ploplinux *
/opt/clonezilla *
/opt/production 172.16.0.0/16,172.30.0.0/16,172.28.0.0/16

There's always the Server Manager. Although it's not going to show all permissions, it'll at least show you which folders are shared and even who's looking at what. So please ignore this if you know it and would just like something better fitting.

Right-click on My Computer>click on Manage>(for server 2008 r2 at least)expand Roles>expand File Services>click on Share and Storage Manager. From here, you can right-click on a shared folder>Properties>Permissions tab to view the settings for each.

Hopefully this is the same or at least similar to how 2003 does it.

Yes, it will give you the share permissions, but not the actual folder ACL's, and that can be a quite large nightmare. Then it will get twice as complicated if the folder ACE's are made up of groups (As they should be), because then you have to look up the group memberships, which can be a bit tedious.

Really it sounds like a reasonable request for IT, but it is not, it is a major pain for even medium sized business's, and involves quite a bit of work.

Hmm in Server 2003 it doesn't seem to be the same.

EDIT: What are really need are the permissions. The shares aren't important. I just need to know who has permission to the folder.

With Server 2003 you still right click on "My computer" and select "Manage" but shares are under "System tools" and "Shared Folders" (With "System tools" being expanded by default).

I'd be surprised if it did work right off the bat. You might have to hack it a bit to get it to work. Make sure it also runs as some one with full permissions on the server.
