I have setup a citrix environment.  the users use a local profile for computers, and a roaming profile for terminal services.
The terminal services profiles have security access for the user and the system group.  i need to add the domain admins to this so we can go in and fix user profile issues.  The root folder gives domain admins access, but the roaming profiles do not inherit the permision.

Does anyone know how to add the domain admins to the security of the terminal services roaming profiles an give Full control?

Start by adding some group policy settings for your terminal servers: Computer Configuration\System\User Profiles, "Don't check ownership of roaming profiles" (enable this), "Add security group Administrators to the permissions for roaming profiles" (enable this); I'm not using an English version, so check for settings similar to these. The second option will only work for new profiles.
Then take ownership of the roaming profiles (during off-hours, obviously), and set the permissions the way you want them (or, if you manage your TS profiles using group policies, and you don't have anything vital in them, delete them and let them recreate).
