Issue:
We have several users that are setup similarly in CA Access Control that are not able to view the same files.
Resolution:
This is one way you could check for users access to a file or not.  I am going to create a quick example:

I login as a user named, 'senad01', and that user tried to perform the cat command on a flat file, thus giving that user the 'Permission denied' error.

We can use the 'seaudit' utility by typically going to, '/opt/CA/AccessControl/bin/seaudit' and we can see that we denied the reading right performed by user 'senad01' in the prior picture.

We can see here with a different switch that the root cause is we have a rule in place where we blocked that resource from being accessed.

Always check the seaudit utility to see if there is a rule in place preventing you from accessing a resource.
