Third-party Kerberos realms and publishing refresh

  • You add or remove a user from an Active Directory security group that is used to control access to an application.
In this scenario, Application Virtualization 4.5 does not correctly publish the application after a publishing refresh procedure. The user must log off and then log back on to see the changes.
