This is a repost from an original post.  The orignal anwser worked for a while and then it stopped working again.
Below is the original solution that worked.  So I reversed the solution to allow Auto Certification and now the printing is working again.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310461
But now accessing a folder on the server does not allow access.  I gave the user full "Domain Admin" rights and it still doesn't make a difference.
To test to see if the user is the problem or the workstation.  I logged on as a test user account I have and it worked fine with access to printers and folders on the server.
Anybody have any ideas?


Previous Solution:
I have 1 workstation that all of a sudden 1 day stopped getting auto access to the printers on the Domain Controller that is a print server.
I can get the Workstation to access the printers by accessing the server. Via Start>run>\\servername.  The user is prompted for UN & PW.  The user is then able to access and print until they log of or restart.  Then you have to go through the whole process again.  Removing and readding a printer by browse of the directory shows no printers.  And if you path a printer you get the log on prompt.  But log off and restart it won't access until you access the print server.
No other user or workstation is having these problems.  I have added the user to printer and folder shares with full access and no luck.  When I log on as administrator or another user it will work fine.
So something is  up with ths user any ideas?  I checked all the AD user stuff didn't see anything goofey.  Belongs to the same groups as other users.

I would try disjoining the computer from the domain.
Rebooting it, then rejoining the domain.
Reboot. Then log on again and try mapping the printer.

Hope this helps

Okay,
I copied all of the user data off of the workstation.  Deleted the existing user profile and created a new one and copied everything back.................not a great solution but this fixed the problem.
