System Does Not Respond to Smart Card (4415094)

If ocfserv terminates and the display is locked, the system remains locked even when a smart card is inserted or removed.

Workaround: Perform the following steps to unlock your system:

  1. Perform a remote login to the machine on which the ocfserv process was terminated.

  2. Become superuser.

  3. Kill the dtsession process by typing the following in a terminal window.

    # pkill dtsession

ocfserv restarts and smart card login and capability are restored.
