  • NTFS Share permissions

    Hyena 7.7C:
    Is there a way to report on the NTFS permissions on all the system at one time? I see where you can get the Share Security but not the NTFS Security?

    Re: NTFS Share permissions

    In Hyena you can select as many servers or computers as you like, and 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 share permissions, check the box for shares and choose the type of shares you want reported on. For NTFS file and directory permissions check the box for Files and Directories.

    If you want NTFS permissions, 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 enabled on this screen, if there is anything else enabled, double-click on them and disable them. When done, click Close and click Start Export.

    When finished you can open the output file specified on the Security Access tab with Excel or Access.

      Thanks for the quick response. Right after I sent the post I found one of your post from last month with the same instructions.

      Thanks again

        I would be careful with how many you choose at a time. I found it can take a long long time depending on how many machines and your network configuration.
