networking server 2003 question

I have a client that is not connecting properly to the network.  His computer is connecting (e.g. he has Internet access) but his share is not there and his Outlook and other shares aren’t available.  He’s rebooted more than once, and confirms that he’s logging into the domain and not the local computer.  

 

I looked over everything I could think of, event logs show no problem, all I could think to try was to delete his lease in DHCP, but he logged back in with the same problem (and the computer was issued a new lease).  I’m not able to connect to his computer from here, but I suspect remote access is disabled on his PC (OPS-001).

 

He logged into another station and his share is there, and he set up Outlook so his files and email are now available to him.  

Any ideas?

try taking his pc off the domain by making it use a wrkgrp, reboot, then change it back to domain.  also try deleting it from the domain & then adding it back.
