On windows 2008 active directory, home folder permissions are change slightly. On windows 2003 active directory following permission were applied.

Administrators (Group) -> Full permission
System -> Full Permission
User Account -> Owner with full permission

Windows 2008 has increase the security and removed default permission from Administrators and systems. Only user account should have owner with full permission.

Do you have any issue with permission?
