User Authentication Problem unique to a computer

  Asked By: Keon    Date: Jan 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1329

I have a user who is asked for credentials when going to our SharePoint
site. Domain Users by default should have Reader access. The NT
Security Event Log on the SharePoint server shows the username as the
computername with a trailing $. If the same user goes to another
computer and logs in, they can access SharePoint with no prompting for
credentials. The NT Security Event Log shows just the regular username,
not the computername$.

Any ideas?
