ClearCase compatibility with MS Hello for Business

When authenticating through Hello for Business, ClearCase Windows clients do not allow the CLEARCASE_PRIMARY_GROUP to be applied to the running processes, so no access is allowed to the VOBs. Previously mounted VOBs do not remount after login. Views don't restart after login.

    Had similar issue where when logging in with a Windows Hello PIN, members of the ClearCase admin group were unable to see content in the VOBs.
    They are able to start views and mount vobs but the content of the VOBs returns access denied.
    Taking the users out of the ClearCase groups solves the problem but of course that removes the privileges bestowed by the group membership.
    Don't see the issue when logging in with Windows standard passwords.
