I'm fairly new to Netapp management, and having grown up on Novell I was used to being able to manage file and directory ACLs.
Now that we are on MS AD, I know of no easy way to see what files/folders a user or group has access to.
Does anyone know of a Netapp (or other) tool that can audit and manage these ACLs ?
I don't really feel like drudging through miles of CACLS output, or waiting for it to dump.

From the NetApp only share level access is managed.
You'd use Microsoft tools to manage ACLs on the folders and files stored in shares.
I hope this response has been helpful to you.
At your service,
(P.S. I appreciate points for helpful or correct answers.)

Yes, ACLs in NTFS are a pain sometimes. I recommend you use a ACL tool for scanning whole shares and exporting the permissions.
My favorite tool is Fileacl (freeware) since it's very fast: http://www.gbordier.com/gbtools/fileacl.asp
The command below exports all subdirs of a share:
>fileacl.exe \\server\share /BATCH /SUB
With a little bit of scripting you can import the permissions into a db for better searching.
