Force Lotus Notes Smartcard Login

Posted on 2011-05-02
Last Modified: 2013-12-18
I am learning how to configure user IDs for smartcard authentication on version 8.0.2.  I have imported the internet certificates from the smartcard and locked the user ID using the certificate.  Lotus Notes only prompted for the PIN once and now every time I start up the Notes client it DOES NOT prompt for the PIN and logs me in.

How can I configure Domino/Notes to prompt for the PIN every time the client starts?  I have been searching and cannot seem to find a solution or anyone else who has had the problem.  That usually means I've missed something in my configuration!

       Hi there  fredsmullin,,,

    Honestly, I havent ever done it before , but all what I can do in this case is to recommend you to cross check the configuration using this link

    Moreover, May I sugget a LND  version upgrade to version 8.5 which has more features & capabilities .

    Thanks for the links.  I agree that upgrading to 8.5 should be done.  I was just checking into it to satisfy current IA concerns.
