Viewing computers

To browse for permissions, expand a node in the Navigation pane to display the computers where Access Explorer has found permissions for the specified account. Expanding a computer displays a list of Resource Groups, which are Access Explorer results (folders and files) grouped by permission type (explicit or group membership).

Viewing resource groups

Resource groups provide a way of managing folders and files. Selecting a resource group in the Navigation pane displays a list of folders and files in the Objects pane.

Grouping folders and files into resource groups is optional and can be turned off on the Access Explorer tab of the Options dialog box. See Setting options for Access Explorer. If you clear the Display folder and file resource groups check box, the full list of folders and files is displayed as soon as a computer is expanded.

Security Explorer displays results in pages to manage large volumes of results. Use the arrow keys to move through the pages of results.

Displaying results in pages is optional and can be turned off on the Access Explorer tab of the Options dialog box. See Setting options for Access Explorer. If you clear the Use Paging when displaying results check box, all the folders and files are displayed as soon as a computer is expanded.

Viewing permissions

In the Objects pane, select a result to display its permissions in the Permissions pane. Permissions are grouped into two tabs.

The Access Explorer Permissions tab displays the permissions for the selected account as they exist in the Access Explorer database.
Open the Live Permissions tab to view the current live permissions.

Select a permission to perform typical NTFS Security module functions, such as Grant, Revoke, or Clone. See Managing permissions for more information about NTFS Security module functionality.

If you want to extend the NTFS functionality to Access Explorer objects, select the Allow operations to be performed directly on Enterprise Objects check box on the Access Explorer tab in the Options dialog box. See Setting options for Access Explorer.

Searching Access Explorer servers

You can add only Access Explorer servers to an NTFS module search scope. All standard NTFS module search options are available and the search process is the same as any other search in the NTFS Security module. See Using the Browse tab to search.
