I've delegated control to a couple of users for the maintaining of user accounts.  I've granted them just about everything I can think of.   They're able to create/modify new users okay, but when it comes time for AD to create the home directory, they recieve an "Access Denied" message for the path to the newly created folder and then the folder isn't created.  The new user account appears to be okay though (just no home directory).

The ID of the user creating the accounts has Full Permissions to the share where the folder is to be created.

I don't get it?

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  That did the trick!

I had my Share permissions set to Read, change only.  (Not Full Control)
