Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've got a situation where a user can login using his smartcard, but after he's logged in the smartcard can no longer be read. Basically, he can login but any other program that needs to read the card fails. Even trying to use ActiveClient to read the contents of the smartcard shows nothing... yet he can login.

Tried it on several different computers, all same (for him only - others can login and use the systems fine). In Active Directory his account has the same permissions as everyone else.

I'm baffled... any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
