KB-10053: Error loading PKCS #11 module (/usr/lib64/pkcs11/

Authentication Service ,

Error appears when a smart card is inserted into RHEL host:

Error loading PKCS #11 module (/usr/lib64/pkcs11/

User-added image


The parameter in /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf is not pointing to the correct path. The correct path is:

# rhel.smartcard.pkcs11.module: /usr/$LIB/pkcs11/

If a custom module is in place, the link must also be directed to the correct path, for example:
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 65 Jan 1 12:34 -> /usr/share/centrifydc/lib64/coolkey/gcc4/pkcs11/
