KB-5000: Smart card support is broken after applying Redhat Linux 7.0 Enterprise Security Client update

Authentication Service ,  

12 April,16 at 11:10 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0

Problem : 

Smart card works as expected on Redhat Linux 7.0 with default smart card support pack. However, if the RedHat update is turned on, it will update the Enterprise Security Client and this breaks the existing smart card support on RHEL 7.0.


This is caused by a RedHat bug and please find the below link for details:

Workarounds : 

1) Downgrade the xulrunner package with the following command, if the smart card support is broken after the OS update:

yum downgrade xulrunner

2) Turn off the RedHat update and do not perform an OS update until the Redhat Linux bug has been fixed in the future Redhat Linux 7.1 release.
