NTAccount Translation seconds after account has been created c#

Hey all I am getting the following error, what I am doing is creating an account in the AD then a split second later creating their home folder. Another split second later I am assigning the permissions to the folder but for some reason I can not translate the account. Do I need to wait a set time?

17/08/2010 09:00:43: Permissions: EB0849758 FAILED - System.Security.Principal.IdentityNotMappedException: Some or all identity references could not be translated.

Yes, it is possible that the domaincontroller that authenticated your fileserver has not received the update for the new user account yet. This is normal behaviour.

Within a 2003 AD site, any domain controller waits 15 seconds before sending an update notification to its replication partners, with a maximum of 3 hops. Reference: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc728010%28WS.10%29.aspx

Instead of waiting for a random interval, you may catch the specific exception and retry after 15 seconds.
