Issue might be related to the user account, found the corrupted user account in AD, this might be the reason the corrupted account you make on a DC is not allowed to cache login credentials, but any others user account are allowed to login with cache credentials

I have Re-created the user account in Domain to resolved the issue, and make sure you have taken the backup of all group membership and other access details

Profile Migration:

Please plan the user profile migration before the account re-creation, so that no impact to the user with the new user account
