Hi All,
I know that this setting exists in 2003, but on 200 server, is there a way to automatically add the administrator full controll to Roaming profiles that are created using group policy?

    The same way as in Server 2003; the setting is defined in Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon, "Add security group 'Administrators' to roaming profiles" (or similar, not using an English version). This policy needs to be applied to the client machines, and it will only work for new profiles, it won't change anything on existing profiles. For existing profiles, you can take ownership, assign the permissions, and (in the same tree as above) enable the policy "Don't check the owner of roaming profiles" (again for the clients).
