Applies to:

Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite Plus - Version and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)
Microsoft Windows (32-bit)
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) - OS Version: 7
Microsoft Windows (32-bit) - OS Version: 7


Using Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Logon Manager (LM) configured with Windows Logon V2 logon method and using a smart card to logon to the Windows domain, when the LM agent is configured with GINA authenticating dialog. In the case of Windows XP, once logged on to Windows there will not be any requirement to provide further authentication to the LM agent. In the case of Windows Vista and Windows 7 after logon to Windows, you will be again challenged for Authentication.

To summarize, when user authenticates to a Windows domain with a smart card they do not authenticate to LM automatically if using Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Note: The configuration GINA Authenticating dialog is not same as the GINA Logon Methods. This configuration can be done from Global Agent Settings --> Primary Logon Methods --> Windows V2 --> Reauthentication Dialog whereas the GINA Logon Method is added at the time of installation of LM-Agent when you select Logon Method as Windows Logon V2 --> GINA
