Known Issues in 3.1

  • Smart card authentication does not work while connecting to the Unified Access Gateway server if the alternate subject name has the email address for the certificate mapped with the domain account.

  • Unified Access Gateway session timeout does not disconnect the Blast Connection.
    Workaround:Keep the session timeout on UAG greater than or equal to that of Horizon server.

    1. Click the gear icon next to that edge service setting. A pop-up window is opened.
    2. Locate the label Auth Methods and select the option Select Auth from the drop-down menu.
