Powershell Local Policies User Rights Assignment Windows

For anybody looking for a PowerShell script, this ought to do it:

It gets the list of users who have a profile on the local machine, determines their names from the SID, and invokes - as recommended by Ramhound - on them. Each user's record starts with the username in format, contains each right on a line, and ends with a blank line. (SID translation courtesy of this article.) You can dump its stuff to a file with the redirection operator, .

A caveat of AccessChk is that it seems to produce an empty list for domain users that don't have local admin rights. Therefore, this version that produces the above information for every known user in the domain and on the machine is a little lame, but may become useful with a future version of the tool:

If you're wondering what is talking about, it's just getting the list of principals (in SID form) to which the rights have been assigned in User Rights Assignment (see ). Therefore, you'll usually see the SIDs for groups like Users or Administrators rather than specific people.
