Citrix has released Citrix StoreFront 2.5.2 with some good fixes…

Issues fixed in StoreFront 2.5.x

Updated: 2014-06-18

Issues fixed in StoreFront 2.5.2

Fail to launch a XenApp session from the second delivery site.

The StoreFront server had problems with load balancing between two XenApp farms. When the first farm was completely loaded, StoreFront did not use the second farm and the application launch failed. [#432279]

Enhanced enumeration fails with socket pooling enabled.

Enumeration failed for two or more farms when socket pooling was enabled in the store configuration file. [#470666 and #458139]

Issues with finding the domain controller for a domain.

Slow logon times occurred when geographically distant domain controllers were chosen. [#479210]

Submitting the logon form after the authentication service session timed out results in an HTTP 400 Bad Request.

When the logon form was submitted after the authentication service session timed out, an HTTP 400 Bad Request response was generated preventing the user’s credentials from being resubmitted. [#479200]

Directory queries are not thread-safe.

Citrix default Domain Services crashed because the Directory services account look-up was not thread-safe. [#479188]

Issues fixed from StoreFront 2.1 to 2.5

Changing an expired password on next logon fails.

When prompted to change a password, client domain users using Windows would not be able to successfully change their passwords because of Windows Server 2003 domain controllers failing to handle the operation correctly. Microsoft has issued an update that resolves this problem. The update is available via Windows Update or may be downloaded from Microsoft support directly at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2927811. [#438725]

A user with a large number of subscriptions loses the ability to manage subscriptions.

When logging on, users with 353 or more automatic app subscriptions would receive the following error: “Citrix Receiver cannot currently add, remove, or reposition apps.” [#432086]

The wrong user name is sometimes shown.

Clients would erroneously display a different username. [#430823]

PNA resource IDs do not match requirements of local launch logic.

PNA resources from XenApp were in a format different than StoreFront’s usage. This inconsistency led to slower performance due to excessive ICA connections.[#429055]

Partial wildcard certificates cause issues in the admin console.

The admin console would improperly display configured host names from the IIS bound certificates. [#424708]

Change password option is not available for some users.

Some users were not given the option to reset their password even though they were enabled to do so. [#416373]

Subscription export/import loses subscription properties.

StoreFront was not properly maintaining multiple subscription properties. [#408668]

DAC smart card authentication updated to use domain account services rather than IIS certificate mapping.

Desktop Appliance Connector certificate authentication with smart cards required manual configuration with IIS certificate mappings rather than using the default domain account services. [#406945]

A SAN web server certificate with no CN causes issues for the admin console.

StoreFront admin console was improperly handling common name entries in certificates which would cause console crashes.[#401815]

StoreFront home farms support gives a user access to all farms when they should have access to none.

When a user was configured without access to any farms, all farms were enumerated for that user.[#400869]

The admin console being closed would overwrite some manually applied changes made to the configuration file.

Some manual configuration changes were being lost when the admin console was closed. [#440946, #424460, #439887, #395155]
