What could be wrong with this accout?   I have checked this account, and it seems to have the same settings as the others have.
not sure why only this account returns the errors above.

I'd guess the user doesn't have read (or is it execute?) permission on that directory
Try
cd /cern
ls -l |grep d_stp to check owner/group & permissions on that dir

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Yes, you may miss the read permission on directory 'd_stp'.

And also, if /cern/d_stp is a mount directory, you should set the directory permissions before mounting FileSystem : effectives permissions seem to be mount directory permissions and not filesystem 'root' permissions. 'ls -ld /cern/d_stp' prints root filesystem permissions.

An other strange AIX behavior....
