Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2014-02-05 15:57:51 UTC
A customer currently has RHEL 6 NetiD smartcards, successfully.  In preparation for RHEL 7, they are testing the beta in house. They've hit an interoperability issue.  The problem is if the smartcard is inserted at login, NSS returns a spurious error.  If that error gets gets ignored, then everything works.  In RHEL 6, the smartcard code retries on error.  In RHEL 7, it gives up.

We should try to keep parity with RHEL 6, to keep this class of hardware functioning.

Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2014-02-05 15:59:34 UTC
comment 0 should say "currently has RHEL 6 deployed using NetiD smartcards"

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2014-02-05 16:11:34 UTC
see bug 1061799 for the NSS side of this issue.
