Issue 1

When you use the server features of Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) 5.0 to define connection groups, the connection group priority is always published as 0.

Note This problem occurs regardless of what setting is applied to the connection group priority.

This problem occurs because the connection group priority is retrieved incorrectly from the Management database. Therefore, the connection group priority is always retrieved as 0.

More Information

To resolve this problem, apply this hotfix before you set the connection group priority.
