Senior admins cannot create a roaming profile that a user can access. Error states folder doesn't have correct security

The process to create a new account involves manually creating the profile folder and assigning modify rights (ntfs) for the end user. I know this isn't the best way but I don't have the ability to change that just yet. There are only three accounts that get inherited rights on the profile folder. One is a technician(modify), the other is senior admin (Full) and then the system account (full). I'm thinking that the administrators of the server that the fileshare resides on needs to have full permissions also. Nevertheless, when a senior admin creates the folder, the end user's profile doesn't copy. The error states the folder already exists and has the incorrect security. If the domain admin creates the folder, there is no issue. Looking at ownership of the folder in both situations indicates the senior admin created folder shows ownership for that senior admin's name. If the doamin admin creates it, the ownership shows the administrators of the file share server is the owner. What's the best way to fix this understanding that a senior won't have domain admin permissions?

The user should have ownership rights

BY default a roaming profile is created either by the location stipulated in the "profile" section of the users in "Domain users and Computers" (Admin tools) or where you stipulate in the your group policy. So when either of these two try to create the required files and folders it sees it is already there and thus the message you get. I suggest you let these processes create the files/folders and then you can write a script to go in afterwards and add any other users that need permissions to these files and folders--you can run an automated script after the user has first logged on.

Either solution is acceptable but I couldn't get the main Network admin to listen to reason so I quit banging my head against the wall and went elsewhere
