I am currently trying to set up smart card logon in a test environment. The environment consists of a windows 2008r2 remote desktop services server, and a wyse v10l client with an omnikey cardman 3121 card reader. I have installed the appropriate CSP for the used smart cards, and installed the appropriate certificate as trusted root ca’s and ntauthca’s.
Now the issue is that the smart card is not detected at the time I open the connection to the rdp server. The safesign tile will just sit there waiting for ‘insert a smart card’. If I log in using a username and password, I can access the smartcard contents with safesign’s token administration utility (which leads me to believe that redirection to the reader is set up correctly)
Also, when I fire up a remote desktop client inside the rdp session, that client will see the smart card, and at least try to use it to log in.
Why is my smart card not detected at logon time?
