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 wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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
adacunhaCommented:
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....
