Hi

I need to turn off RSA SecureId login screen on Windows Server 2003 to get access to it using my Active Directory credentials.

Do you know how turn it off?

Probably in the RSA Security Center console.
By default is located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\RSA Shared\RSA Security Center\SCApp.exe.

under "Local"
>go to "Configure..." in Credential Provider Settings
>go to the Select Credential Provider logon option drop-down list
>change to "Hide RSA Authentication Agent Provider"

Note: The options Hide Microsoft Password Provider or Only show RSA Authentication Agent Provider allow users to only authenticate using RSA and not Active Directory credentials

The issue is RSA Server is down and I need a work around to access to some servers with local user or Active Directory credentials

thought there should be offline mode available as stated in guide - if you have added offline auth policy

else another means I was thinking to login local admin and remove it from GINA chaining (e.g. RSA SecurID (AceGina.dll)), see more http://vb.net/products/rsa/GINA_TB_1005.pdf

e.g. fired up Regedit and went looking to see which GINA was installed other than the default Microsoft GINA.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Under the GinaDLL registry key, you should see AceGina.dll configured which is the GINA for RSA SecurID agent.  If i deleted the registry key and uninstalled the agent, the login may work...

Here is the solution:

 
A workaround is to replace the RSA Gina with the Microsoft Gina as such:

1) Boot the server to Safe Mode
run regedit and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Ginadll
Note current value and then change it to msgina.dll
exit regedit and reboot

2) Another option if you have remote access to C: drive, rename the RSA GINA, copy the msgina to same location and rename it to the original RSA GINA file name.
