  • See this FAQ for one possible explanation, including instructions for solving the issue. Also, make sure the user hasn't saved other credentials for accessing the server.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • as Ken mentioned, stored credentials on the client for accessing the server are often a reason (Start/Run/control keymgr.dll should reveal those)

    Other potential reasons are:
    changed password on the client, but still the old on the server (although you should see a clear message about this then from Connector software)
    an enabled guest account on WHS.

    Sometimes it may also help to delete the user in the console and recreate the account.

  • In addition to the above, I have also found this to work.
     
    1.  Open WHS Console
    2  Go to  User Account Tab in WHS Console
    3  Click on the appropriate User
    4  Select Properties
    5  On the Properties window, select Shared Folder Access
    6  Change access to all Folders to none
    7  Click Apply, then Ok and then exit WHS Console
    8  Reopen WHS Console and follow the steps above but this time give access to the folders you want the user to have
