- In the SGD Administration Console, on the Global Settings » Client Device tab, is the Smart Card check box is selected?
- In the SGD Administration Console, on the Global Settings » Application Authentication tab, is the Smart Card Authentication check box selected?
- On Microsoft Windows client platforms:
- Check that the smart card reader listed in the Windows Device Manager.

Right-mouse click on the Secure Global Desktop icon in the Windows system tray and select Connection info. The Smart card reader property should list the details in the format reader:ATR_string where reader is the manufacturer and model of the smart card reader

pcscd) is running, for example by running
/sbin/service pcscd status.
- Try restarting the PCSC daemon with a
--debug stdout option. Insert the card in the reader and see if the reader and card are detected.
- On Solaris OS platforms:
- If you are using the PC/SC Shim for SCF package, check that the OCF server (
ocfserv) is running. Enable it if it is not (
svcadm enable svc:/network/rpc/ocfserv).
