  • List Permissions of a Group


    I was wondering if there was a way to find out all the files/folders that a group has been granted access to.

    We just switched from Novell to Active Directory and in Novell you could look at the properties of a group and get a list of all the folders which that group has been granted some type of access to. I would like to do the same kind of thing with Hyena. Is that possible?

    Re: List Permissions of a Group

    You can do this with these instructions:

    In Hyena select the server or servers that you want to search, then go to Tools->Exporter Pro->Export Selected Objects.
    Click the Settings button, then double-click on Security Access.
    Check the box to Export Security Information and enter an Output File Name.

    For NTFS file and directory permissions check the box for Files and Directories.

    Check the box to only export information for users/groups listed in this file. Enter a filename that will contain the users/groups you want to search for. The file doesn't have to exist yet because when you click the Edit button Notepad will open and ask you if you want to create it. In the file you will list, one per line, the users and/or groups you want to search for. Then click OK to close that dialog.

    You'll also need a File/Directory template, so double-click on File/Directory. Click the New button at the bottom, give it a Template Name and an Output File Name. If you only want to search directories, check the box for that, then click the Add button beside Shared Directory Paths. Choose the shares you want, how far down you want it to scan, then click OK.

    Security Access and File/Directory should be the only options bolded on this screen, if there is anything else bolded, double-click on them and disable them. When done, click Close and click Start Export.

    When finished you can open the output file with Excel.
