Sometimes when creating users, NSM will display recurring messages like:

07/30 13:00:41 1: E146 Invalid policy path <FS-STUD-BM/VOL1:userskdanny>
for
<kdanny.STUDENTS.BIRMINGHAM.LAWCOL>

07/30 13:00:41 2: E147 A new directory for
<kdanny.STUDENTS.BIRMINGHAM.LAWCOL>
cannot be created in any of the defined policy paths.

The message will be repeated many times for a few minutes, then eventually:

07/30 13:01:09 5: E119 Add user: kdanny.STUDENTS.BIRMINGHAM.LAWCOL
complete.

It always seems to 'sort itself out' and successfully create the user in
the end but I just wonder why it has the above difficulty sometimes?
