Using active client 6.1 CaC card authentication with VMware View workstations. Having an issue where when trying to connect to a vm via rdp the vm tells me the drivers needed for the CaC card are not loaded. Once logged into an admin account the Cac reads the card. Has anyone seen an issue like this? Thanks in advance.

You need to grant them the required facilities for the CaC system to work with them in their own context.

Go back and review the Active Client Install documents as they will certainly have the required AD Roles or Privs

Speaking with my engineer he says he believes its a driver issue with the DOD CAC reader. the CAC works fine with the physical workstations. It's just when attempting to use with with the virtual enviroment is where we are having the issues.

We are having similar issues with our VMware View implementation.  However, I do have the VM coming up and under "Connect USB Device" at the top of our window, it lists the CAC reader but when clicked on it comes up saying it is "Unable to connect 'Smart Terminal XX44' device.  Device may be in use by another application."  Our thin client is the HP GT7720 and we are using View 4.5 with an XP VM.  Read somewhere else that the View Agent MUST be installed on the VM AFTER the Active Client.  This was on a page speaking to using the CAC for login authentication which we are not using.  Just need to be able to use the reader in the View provided VM.
