Hi, We are performing folder permission auditing at the moment. We are using tools like DumpSec, Security Explorer to dump the ntfs permission on the shares at a particular time stamp. I am just wondering if there is any similar tools or applications out there that can perform the task (dumping ntfs permission for network shares) in a scheduled time and provide a delta report for the permission based on the folders or an individual users. Cheers.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We use ‘DumpSec’ also. Export to ‘CSV’ (or TSV if the data contains commas) tables which we parse using the free Microsoft tool ‘Log Parser’ (currently version 2.2). History of changes is achieved with an Access database built from those tables and updated on schedule. I usually run the update dump on Monday mornings. I have enabled auditing of permission changes in the ‘Event Logs’ to check for transient changes. Good Luck.

    I think you mean other FREE tools. Your gonna have to pay for more functionality. I like DumpSec though... :)

    Thanks for the input. No I will consider any enterprise version of the similar software. I have just evaluated Emco's Permissions Audit but it also didn't keep track of history. I am writing some batch files and scripts to dump all servers shares to tsv using DumpSec and then import it to the MSDE database each weekend. Still need to figure out how to generate the reports for the administrators and directory custodians though.
