Unable to connect to CLM Server with RTC Eclipse client using Smard Card



Unable to authenticate with Smart Card when connecting to the IBM Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) server using the IBM Rational Rational Team Concert (RTC) Eclipse client.


You are able to authenticate with Smart Card when connecting to the CLM server using the web client but fail when connecting with the RTC Eclipse client.


 The Java SDK that comes with the RTC Eclipse client does not support Smart Card.

Resolving The Problem

In order to connect with a Smart Card in the RTC eclipse client, the Java SDK that comes with the Eclipse client must be updated to IBM 1.6 SR12 for Smart Card support.  This issue is being tracked in defect 250856.
