Windows 2003 Active Directory Users/Groups

  1. I am looking for a little help. Here is what I am looking to do:

    I am working on a Windows 2003 server. It is a Domain Controller so it holds a copy of the Active Directory. I have several security groups created - no distribution groups. I have another sever that serves as the file server. I want to know if there is a way to pick a security group and find every file or directory that they have access to.

    If anyone knows of anything please land a hand.

    Thanks,
    OnePCTech

    Yes. If you are administrator, use the administrative manual... it is all a matter of how you set it up.

    I do not have the administrator account password but my account is in the adminstrator group. Where can I find the "administrative manual"?

    Thanks!

    You could use the command: "gpresult" while in a command prompt.
    Type: gpresult /? to find the correct syntax.

    Is that only available in Windows 2003 Server?
