I think we need to take a step back.

The error you reported generally means that the user exists, but hasn't been
given any access to the Perforce Server.
To check if that's the case, please run these commands:

# Depending on how the shared server is setup, this will either confirm that the
user exists (and if they have a password) or create them after authentication
against the LDAP server. p4 -u 'DOMAIN\kson' clone -p
sharedServer:1666 login # This will tell us how the user authenticates p4 -u
'DOMAIN\kson' clone -p sharedServer:1666 user -o # This will tell
us what the user has access to do on the shared server p4 -u
'DOMAIN\kson' clone -p sharedServer:1666 protects   
As far as debugging on 'p4 clone', I think the most useful thing to see
will be the communication between the client and the shared server turning on
the RPC trace: this will produce a lot of extra output.
To do this, just add the "global argument -vrpc=3" to the clone
command. For example:

p4 -vrpc=3 -d test -u 'DOMAIN\kson' clone -p sharedServer:1666 -r
Please let us know what you find.
