  1. Unable to login windows 10 via smartcard


    Hello All,


    can someone help/confirm if you come across the below issue with smartcard authentication?


    when try to login in windows 10 by smart card, it says " The domain specified is not available. please try again later"


    We did increase logon cache from 3 to 10, but it did not help.


    Any leads/ suggestions? please

    :)

    Smartcard login


    Hi All

    I have started to use a Smartcard to login to my Windows 10 Education machine. Logging in works fine but the one annoying problem I have is that when I boot up the machine and am at the login screen it ALWAYS defaults to using a password login. This even happens after successfully logging in with the Smartcard. ie: it doesn't "remember" that I last used a Smart card to login.

    Is there a way to set the Smartcard as the default login? I still want the password login to be an option but I always want the Smartcard to be the default.

    Basically, I want to turn the machine on and to then be presented with a PIN entry screen to login with my Smart card. (I'm the only person that uses this machine)

    Currently I have to ALWAYS change from a password login by selecting the Smartcard on the logon screen and only then can I enter the PIN.

    I also have to change from a password logon to a Smartcard logon even if I have just locked my machine!

    So, is there a way I can set Windows 10 to ALWAYS default to using a Smartcard login?

    I have clients that use Smartcards with Windows 7 and it always remembers the last logon type. Can Windows 10 do this as well?

    For those interested I am using the following to use a Smartcard on a workgroup machine:

    Smartcard login

    My new laptop, a Thinkpad T480s has a smartcard reader and is shipped with Window 10 Pro. How can I use the smartcard reader to log into Windows using a smartcard?

    I'm not really interested in all kinds of technical stuff about smartcards, I'm just a home user and I have a smartcard reader and several smartcards that might be usable. Simple as that. I don't need filesystem encryption for now either.

    I see it as just logging in with an alternative input - not unlike fingerprint login really.

    But instead of fingerprint, I want to use smartcard.

    How to do it?

    Contactless smartcards for login?


    In Windows 8/8.1 I could enroll a touchless smartcard and use it for a login. I am not seeing a way to enroll those in Windows 10. Anyone have any idea where that might be?
