Does the user / security context that you're using to set it (presumably via
AD users and computers) have netware connection details (tree / context, or
preferred server), and conducive netware share and directory permissions
when setting this via the GUI?

You will get a warning / error message if it already exists - and possibly
an error, if the security cannot be set as it would like. But check the
account afterwards, to see if it's still accepted the setting.

It is possible to script / automate this, but not the easiest approach,
unless you are quite comfortable with scripting.
