You should confirm the drive mapping.  If it is pointing to \\AFS\all
and Freelance mode is in use there should be no access restrictions.
If the drive is mapped to a path somewhere else in the name space then
obvious access checks must be performed.  Obviously you should check
to make sure the user actually has AFS tokens.

To obtain a log of what the cache manager is seeing:

 1. "fs trace -on"
 2. attempt to access the mapped drive or somewhere else in \\AFS
 3. "fs trace -dump -off"
 4. examine the %windir%\temp\afsd.log file.

The log file contains the incoming requests and all of the operations
that are performed in order to complete it.

There is a section on debugging in the release notes that are installed
on the machine along with OpenAFS.

The recommended OpenAFS version is 1.5.60 and the Microsoft Hot Fix
listed on http://www.openafs.org/windows.html should be installed.
