System consists of 6 PCs authenticating to an SBS server.

5 people can login to any of the 6 PCs and access the server files.  1 person can login to 5 of the PCs and access the Server files.  On the sixth PC the user can log in but when they try to access files on the server via Windows Explorer they get the see network admin  you may not have permission error message.

I have checked IP addresses (DHCP), pinged the server etc. Everything looks OK.  Why can a particular user not access the server from this PC whilst OK from others?

probaly cached credentials in his profile don't match anymore
try the user on one of the other working pc's
if that works
delete his local account
if it doesn't work on the other pc does a other working account work on his pc

The comment I made regarding Windows Explorer was misleading.  The computer had been recently added  to the domain and it is believed that it did work (but not 100% sure). Basically what happened was that the user could no longer access any files on the server.   Unfortunately I'm not at the client's premises at the moment but I believe they logged in to the domain in the normal way.  When I was there I discovered that I could not access the files on the server when logged in as that user.  Meanwhile the user had logged on to another PC and was happily accessing the server.  I then logged on as a number of other users and had no problem accessing the server files.

At the moment the problem has been temporarily sorted by swapping PCs with one of the other users.

So basically I'm looking for actions to take to resolve this when I next visit the client in a few days time.
