Force user to access specific Xenapp server

Have 2 Xenapp 6.5 servers. Both servers have a published desktop that thin  client users connect to based on load balancing. I need one specific user to always access the published desktop on APP2.

Is there a way I can force this to occur every time user logs in?

I did setup a Load Evaluator rule for the thin client IP address to allow  access to published app but do not see a way to tell it specifically the desktop on APP2. Is there someplace I need to attach that evaluator in order to make it work?

you may publish a dedicated desktop for this use pointing to one desktop only.
another option is to use zone preference and failover.

As Dirk note you can publish a dedicated desktop, if its for time being then you can disable the logon on APP1 server so that he can connect APP 2 server.

How can I specifically disable the ability of one use  to logon to APP1?

you can disable logon for the complete server only.
- from app center (right click to the server ... but don't know the exact way )
- from console: "change logon /disable" or "change logon /drainuntilrestart"
- stopping the IMA-Service on this server

all 3 options don't kick connected users

That is what I thought so that is not an option for us as other users need access to the server.
I created a new desktop specific to the server in question. I removed the user from our "Thin Client" group that allowed users to access either server and download the desktop settings regardless of server that they connected to in the morning. I gave the user access to the new published desktop and when I tried to logon with credentials, received the error message that she could not access her desktop.

try to use webinterface / storefront with her credentials. do she see the "new" desktop ... able to start this desktop from here?

possible the name of application/desktop to use is hardcoded within thinclient settings...
