5378: The requested credentials delegation was disallowed by policy

On this page

This event is probably connected with the "Account is trusted for delegation" account option needed for the application server account of some applications that impersonate the client user before accessing resources on their behalf as well as the related account option, "Account is sensitive and cannot be delegated".

I haven't been able to produce this event. Have you? If so, please start a discussion (see above) and post a sample along with any comments you may have! Don't forget to sanitize any private information.
