When you log on by using a smart card, making network connections with Kerberos may not work after you connect a network drive to a Microsoft Windows NT 4.0-based share. After this occurs, certain functions such as the application of Group Policy do not work.


This problem occurs because Credential Manager uses NTLM authentication instead of Kerberos when you attempt to gain access to Windows 2000-based domain resources.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

   Date        Time   Size     File name

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was first corrected in Windows 2000 Service Pack 2.
