2008 Terminal Server Roaming Profile not working

We have a 2008 Terminal Services Farm using three servers. I have a GPO which enable TS roaming profiles and deletes cached profiles on logoff. The Group Policy loopback is seet to replace. When a user logs on to TS a folder  (<username>.<domain>.v2)is created in the designated file share. However, no information is written to the folder. The next time the user logs on they get a roaming profile error and are logged on with a temp profile. Permissions seem to be correct. The user has full control of their profile folder.

Make sure the user is also the Owner of his profile, and replace ownership and permissions on all child folders.

The user is the owner of the folder and all subobjects. Still no joy.

Does a Default user profile have to be available for the user to modify at firat logon? Seems odd to me that the GPO is telling users to use a roaming profile when hasn't been created yet.

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Here is our setup for the "Parent Folder" holding all the TS roaming profiles:
Administrators - Full Control (This folder, subfolders and files)
Creator Owner - Full Control (Subfolders and files only)
System - Full Control (This folder, subfolders and files)
Users - Full Control (This folder, subfolders and files)

Ours is set up the same. Still doesn't work. The user logs on to TS and gets the bad roaming profile error and is logged in with a temp profile. But in the file share where the roaming profiles are stored a folder is created for the user but it is empty.

Solved this on my own. Needed to create a default user profile located in the file share were the user's roaming profiles are stored.
