We had same issue and as per our analysis we came to know that this is a LogonTokenService cache issue. We followed below steps in order to know.

  • Did full user profile synch
  • Wait for 24 hours to cache expiry
  • The user login worked automatically

Some articles suggesting to reset the Logon token expiration time but we didn`t do that

    $s.LogonTokenCacheExpirationWindow = (New-TimeSpan -hour 1)
    iisreset /noforce
