SBS can not create a user

I am stumped and my client is angry.  I have deployed SBS 2003 and everything was working fine.  I went to add 2 more additional users and SBS came back with the error "The wizard could not successfully configure this user account.  The following could not be completed.  A home folder could not be created for this user.  Quota information could not be set."  I followed the KB294667 article on Microsoft's website and STILL I am getting the same error.  I've rebooted and run gpupdate command...not help.  Right now my client has 2 users with no email...not happy.

I have disabled quotas and have verified the folder redirection policy, the proper permission on the folders and the disk has about 450GB free.  I don't know what next to do.  Help!

Is your "Users Shared Folders" folder shared as Users?  If not, it should be.  Also, the share permissions on the folder should be as follows:

Domain Admins - Full Control
Domain Users - Full Control
Folder Operators - Full Control

The folder's NTFS permissions should be as follows:

Domain Admins - Full Control
Domain Users - Special*
SYSTEM - Full Control
Folder Operators - Full Control

* Travers Folder/Execute File, List Folder/Read Data, Read Attributes, Read Extended Attributes, Create Folders/Append Data, and Read Permissions

Can you manually add a user, rather than use the wizard??

The wizard automatically sets the home drive... I think you can do this manually, and skip the process first up,... therefore letting u add the user, and worry about the home drive error later...

I had same problem, for some reason (unknown) Users Shared folders was shared as "users shared folders" I added the share name "users" & all was ok again.
