SMART Card Authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running SQL Server 2014 SP2 CU8 on Windows Server 2012, We are currently using SSMS 2014 

    The network team enabled “Smart card is required for interactive logon” in Active Directory - once enabled we could no longer connect to our SQL Instance via SSMS. 

    The way I am currently using SSMS is when I open SSMS - Right Click, Run As Different User and use a Smart card to open it.  This makes SSMS use administrator level accounts to authenticate when connecting to the instance using windows Authentication. 

    Our administrator level accounts can no longer authenticate because smart card is now required. 

    Is there a way that the instance of SQL Server can use Smart Card to authenticate. 

    Is there a windows setting that would allow a pass through to SQL Server of some type?

    Would a newer version of SSMS take care of this problem?

    Any information would be appreciated
