User authentication details are not being passed to Citrix applications delivered via ZCM.  User is being prompted to login when accessing the applications.


It is possible to achieve pass-through authentication using group policies assigned to the users.

On the Citrix Server, do the following:

Launch (Microsoft Management Console): mmc

Add: Group Policy Object Editor snap-in
Browse to: Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates

Add in the Citrix snap-in
Action > Add/Remove Templates
[An example path: C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\Configuration\]

Browse to: Citrix Components > Citrix Online Plug-in > User Authentication

Disable: Kerberos Authentication

Enable: Local user name and password
Check option: Enable pass-through authentication
Check option: Use Novell Directory Server credentials

Enable: Locally stored credentials
Enter: User name (optional)
Enter: Domain / eDirectory tree

Repeat steps in User Configuration.
