Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Authentication
Microsoft Windows 7


Installation of Citrix VDA on Windows 7 workstation breaks passthrough authentication on the ZENworks agent.

Workstation passthrough authentication working fine, until Citrix XenDesktop introduced into the
environment. After install of the Citrix VDA, passthrough authentication fails and logging on as a local account, or a domain account prompts the user to authenticate to the Zone.
