When setting up home-shares for your users, there's a time-saving way of setting permissions on those directories.
Create a generic share for your home directories and set the NTFS permissions on that directory for "everyone to read" only. Now when you create a new user, under their home directory, select the drive letter you want it to be and under the UNC path put servernameshare "username".
The username will automatically create a directory under the share with permissions only to the administrator's group and the user themselves.
