I have been tasked with creating a report on our current SharePoint 2010 server (on prem). In this report I need to have the user/group permissions on every site and sub sites. Now I believe I have found a script that will do this for me, but this will be the first time I am running PowerShell Script ever...so I am afraid of messing anything up since it will be run on a live server.
so My question is what are the dangers of running a script on a live server and are there any pit falls I should be aware of before running the script?
link to the script I found: http://johanmeyer.ukuvuma.co.za/2013/02/22/export-all-user-permissions-from-a-sharepoint-2010-site-to-csv/
my background: IT Intern (but not really an intern?) New to scripting but have some background in Java/code in general Being groomed for SharePoint administration
thanks in advance!
