There are 4 things to check here:

1st go to the security tab on the users folder on the server and click on the advanced tab. Make sure that the Administrators group of that server is the owner.
2nd make sure that on the security tab the administrators group and the user have full control
3rd make sure that the share permissions on the folder that contains the user profiles is set to Everyone (Full Control) or at least Authenticated Users (Full Control)
4th Make sure that the time on the client and the server match. If the time is skewed there will be a problem.

Hope this helps.
