On a Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based domain controller, you run one of the following command lines to report the permissions for all the organizational units in a domain:
- dsrevoke /report
- dsrevoke /report /root
However, if the number of organizational units in the domain exceeds the value of the MaxPageSize setting, the tool may not return all the access control entries (ACEs) that are specified on these organizational units.
- By default, the value of the MaxPageSize setting is 1000.
- Organizational units are arranged according to their respective creation dates.
Additionally, if there are no ACEs specified in the first 1000 organizational units, the tool returns the following message:

dsrevoke /report /root:ou=
