What do your logs tell you on the domain controllers? Go to the event viewer and start looking at the Administrative events for errors and or warnings. Re-post any errors with errors with NETLOGON, DNS, DHC or any others that look important. Without detailed information it's hard to say. Client side logs would be helpful too.

Also in order to setup the sync partnership, the user needs to have browse rights to the home folder

It talks about browse rights but what they are actually talking about is Traverse Folder rights. Use this link to understand where and how to use it.
