I have a Windows 2012R2 server running CF 11. ColdFusion is running as a local service account, and is working properly for all other applications on this web server.
I am migrating an old app over from ColdFusion 8 that requires Windows Authentication. When using Anonymous access, the users can access the app and it works properly. When I turn on Windows Authentication, users are getting a 401 error. Event Viewer shows a successful logon (4624). If they access "file.cfm", they get a 401 error. If they access "file.txt", they get the contents of the file successfully. Authentication is successful, apparently, and both files have the same permissions.
When the user is made a local Administrator, he is able to access the file. Taking away Administrator privileges, we get the 401. I tried giving that user full control over webroot, over CF.root, over everything I could think of, but no luck.
I tried using ProcMon to point me somewhere, but must not know it well enough to get anything I can use here. No Access Denied. What else can I do? Any ideas?

It just started working. Not sure what happened, possibly a system restart.
