NTFS Permissions

NTFS permissions reporter for Active Directory

Analyze and refine share permissions and ACLs using this simplified NTFS permissions tool

ADManager Plus, our Active Directory management and reporting solution, is a shared folder and NTFS permissions reporting tool for cluster shared volumes (CSVs) along with Isilon and NetApp servers. It offers predefined reports to view, analyze, and modify NTFS and share permissions or access control lists (ACLs) assigned to Windows or NetApp servers, CSVs, folders, and files.

Using ADManager Plus, you can:

1. Report on Active Directory access control permissions for users and groups

  • Permissions for folder reports: Use this NTFS reporting tool as a folder permissions auditing tool to see which users and groups have access to folders in a specified path. The associated access control entries will indicate the level of access a user or group has for a folder, and specify the inheritable permissions, if any.

      How to list the users and groups who have access to a specific folder using ADManager Plus.

      1. Log in to ADManager Plus and access the Permissions for Folders report.
      2. Specify the path of the folder and the level of access.
      3. Generate the report.
      4. Find the complete steps here.
  • Security reports: View a list of all the servers, subnets, or objects accessible by a specified user account.

2. List folder permissions

  • Shares in the Servers report: List all the shares available in the specified servers, along with important details such as their location, the list of accounts that have permissions on the shares (security principals), their associated permissions, and the scope of the permissions (e.g., folder, sub-folder).
  • Folders Accessible by Accounts report: Filter all folders and files based on their specific account permissions. Check for folders in a specified path and further define the level of access (full control or any other control) to generate a list of results.
  • Non-inheritable Folders report: List the folders and files protected from inheritable permissions. Specify the path to generate a list of all files and folders that are restricted from inheriting their parent objects' permissions.

3. Export folder permissions to Excel or other formats

Export the NTFS and share permissions of files or folders to Excel and in CSV, HTML, PDF, and CSVDE formats.

4. Prevent unauthorized access to NTFS partitions and shares

Gain complete visibility into the NTFS and share permissions of all files and folders to prevent the misuse of files, including the corruption of file content due to unauthorized access. Generate access permissions reports for folders, files, and server shares. Drill down to the actual folder or file, and analyze the security settings and ACLs so you can take appropriate action and streamline user access control.

5. Automate NTFS and share permissions reporting

Schedule these reports to be generated at a specific time. Once generated, these reports can be designated to be automatically emailed to the administrator.

Benefits of using ADManager Plus as an NTFS permissions reporting tool:

  • Generate detailed reports on NTFS, shares, and ACLs without using PowerShell scripts.
  • Schedule and export reports in multiple formats such as CSV, PDF, HTML, and CSVDE.
  • Manage the file server permissions of Windows file servers, cluster shared volumes (CSV), and NetApp and Isilon servers from a single console.
  • Audit file server permission changes made by technicians on user accounts and file shares with the built-in Help Desk Audit Reports.
