I have a profiles share

\\servername\profiles In active directory on the terminal services tab I
fill in the profile path as \\servername\profiles\%username%

When a new user logs on the profile folder is created.  The problem is
that I cannot as a DOMAIN ADMIN or Administrator get access to this
folder.  I have to retake ownership of the profiles folder everytime a
new user is created. I don't ususally need to do this.  But if I want to
blow away somebody's profile so that it can be recreated I need to.
Also if I want to copy favorites from the old profile to the new
profiles I need to do this.

Permission on the profile share are Domain Admin Full Control. Security
on the foler in the same. The Reset Permissions on all child object and
enable propagation of inheritable permissions has been checked and

But it would seem as a new profile folder is created under the share it
does not inherit the \\servername\profiles permissions.

Any ideas.
