Windows Server 2016 -- convert to "SmartCard" logins ?

I already have an Active Directory Windows Server 2016 home test server setup, but now want to change my few test Windows 10 Pro clients to use SmartCards

What URL do you recommend showing a step-by-step on how to setup SmartCards in Server 2016 only for CLIENTS, NOT for logging into the server as "user=DAadmin" since I want to still be able to login to the server without a SmartCard ?

I found https://malwaretips.com/threads/how-to-protect-your-head-less-home-server-with-smart-card-authentication-and-a-yubikey.71078/, but think there might be something better

Commonly you need an CA in your environment. Then each user would request and get a certificate that will be installed on the smartcard.
See the following as a reference...

If you do not have your own CA
see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/281245/guidelines-for-enabling-smart-card-logon-with-third-party-certificatio
