I guess my original letter would be more understandable, if I got into
detail. What I am doing is writing a function that first adds a user to the
domain, then adds them to certain groups on the domain, then creates a
directory for their web page, then sets permissions for that directory. I
have this procedure written and "working", it is just that setting
permissions sometimes does not work because the system doesn't think the
user exists "yet". It can take anywhere from 2 seconds to 2 minutes.
(Setting a 2 minute timer is ridiculous)

My first comment would be using the NT SAM for this kind of stuff
really isn't a great choice.
You can force a sync of the domain controllers using something
like the server manager for domains. There could be an API
for this (to automate it), but I am not sure.
