TrstRpt allows you to scan one or more NetWare directories for trustees.

You can add the target directories to a list and decide individually if the directory is to be scanned including all its subdirectories, or not. You also have the option to scan for directory trustees, for file trustees, or for both.

Once you have selected your targets, you can start the scan - the results will be displayed during the scan.

Platforms: Windows Win95/98 / WinNT/Win2k/WinXP


Tab "Select Start Path"

  1. Select a fileserver and a start directory (any volume or any subdirectory).
  2. You may add one or multiple paths that are to be scanned.
  3. The path is selected by double-clicking on it, and it will be displayed in the lower window.
  4. Your selection will be saved for your next session.
  5. The checkbox indicates if the path is scanned with its subdirectories.

Tab "Scan for Trustees"

  1. Choose an option to scan directories, files, or both.
  2. Choose an option to scan trustees, owners, or both.
  3. Choose a search pattern or leave at (*.*).
  4. Click "Scan for trustees" to start the search.
    (Depending on search options and directory size this may take a while.)

Getting results

After completion of the scan you may display results sorted by path or by trustee name. The results context menu (right mouse click) offers export options:

you may save the results as text file, as Batch file (for future use), or in XML format

If you prefer to see the long names of the paths/files, you can use the context menu to switch the results window to display that format.

Note: the results will be incomplete if you do not have sufficient rights.
