SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have an Authorization Manager store in an Active Directory domain environment.
  • You add a user to a role in Authorization Manager.
  • You log on to and then you log off from the domain on a Windows Vista-based or Windows Server 2008-based client computer by using the user account to that you added the role.
  • The administrator deletes the user from the role in the Authorization Manager.
In this scenario, the user still can access the role.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because, when the client system uses Authorization Manager API to query the Authorization Manager store, the objects in the store are stored locally by Authorization Manager in an in-memory cache. However, these Role objects are not updated when the role is updated on the server side. Therefore, when a user is deleted from the Role, the corresponding Role object in the memory cache still contains the user information.
