W2K3 Server Share Issues

I have been experiencing some issues with creating shared folders in Win 2003 Server.

Example:

Create a USERS folder.  Share it and give SYSTEM and DOMAIN ADMINS full access.  
I then go to AD users profile tab and select the HOME FOLDER, Connect H: to \\servername\USERS\%USERNAME%
When I try to save, I get an error that I do not have CREATE RIGHTS and have to manually create the folder.
MS KB acknowledges this as an issue, but the KB article only applies to EXISTING folders. I am creating a new one.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;824688&Product=winsvr2003

Likewise, if I manually create the subfolder of USERS with the %USERNAME%, the user cannot access it unless I specifically give them rights, and then, even if I give them FULL ACCESS, they cannot write to the folder.

This is a new problem in W2K3.  I never experienced this with earlier server versions.

Any help here would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Ken

You have to give Everyone the Full Control permission over the share itself.  Permissions for the sub-folders that get created by Active Directory Users and Computers account modification will have the appropriate permissions at the NTFS level.

OK, I tried the above KB article Netman66 provided and it works.  Seems a bit convoluted, but as long as it works!

Thanks!
