Workspace App 2009.6 SSON running on Windows 10 1909 Education, doesn't work

Question

Hi everyone

 

I've built two identical virtual machines, built using the same steps, and with the same configuration, apart from one being installed with Windows 10 Enterprise, and the other being installed with Windows 10 Education. My understanding is that the functionality (in the UK at least) is identical for the two versions. They both reside in the same Active Directory OU. Windows is auto-activated with both editions on Windows 10 by the on-prem KMS Services.

 

I've then installed the latest CitrixWorkspaceApp.exe onto both using the command 

 

CitrixWorkspaceApp.exe /includeSSON ENABLE_DYNAMIC_CLIENT_NAME="Yes"

 

I've then applied a GPO that specifies the default StoreFront server to connect to, sets the "Use Local username and password" settings, display Applications on Desktop, etc.

(NOTE: I'm using http to connect to storefront, not https, but I've set the required registry key to allow this)

 

On the Windows 10 Enterprise edition, the published apps and desktops appear correctly on the desktop and start menu.

On the Windows 10 Education edition, nothing appears on the desktop or start menu, and it appears that Citrix Workspace App is not performing single sign-on to StoreFront.

 

In Workspace Apps' Advanced Properties, running Configuration Checker/SSONChecker, on Windows 10 Enterprise, I get the following

 

----------- Citrix Workspace Config Check Results  --------- 
[Test Provider:SSOnChecker.dll]

[SSONChecker][Installation][Installed with Single Sign-on][Checking that Single Sign-on was enabled when installing Citrix Workspace.]

[SSONChecker][Installation][Sign-In credential capture][Checking that Citrix Workspace's configuration allows your desktop sign-in credentials to be re-used for single sign-on.]

[SSONChecker][Installation][Single Sign-on process running][Checking that the Single Sign-on process is running.]

[SSONChecker]['School Service' store configuration][Auth methods for 'School Service (http://storefront.xxxxxxxxx.net/Citrix/Store/resources/v2)'][Checking that domain passthrough authentication is enabled for the store.]

 

Running exactly the same test on Windows 10 Education I get

 

----------- Citrix Workspace Config Check Results  --------- 
[Test Provider:SSOnChecker.dll]

[SSONChecker][Installation][Installed with Single Sign-on][Checking that Single Sign-on was enabled when installing Citrix Workspace.]

[SSONChecker][Installation][Sign-In credential capture][Checking that Citrix Workspace's configuration allows your desktop sign-in credentials to be re-used for single sign-on.]

[SSONChecker][Installation][Network Provider registration][Problems may occur if Single Sign-on is not the first accessed Network Provider. Edit provider order in system Network Connections, Advanced Settings.]

[SSONChecker][Installation][Single Sign-on process running][Checking that the Single Sign-on process is running.]

[SSONChecker][Group Policy][Group Policy][Checking that 'Local user name and password' Group Policy is enabled or left not configured.]

 

I.e. the last two lines aren't shown, implying that it's not finding the pre-configured store settings, although the values are stored in the registry after manually checking (the reside in the same OU so have the same GPO applied)

 

If anyone's seen anything similar and knows a fix (other than deploying Enterprise instead of Education), please let me know.

 

Regards
