Server 2019 Smart card redirection not working




I'm having an issue with Windows Server 2019 and VDA 1906. I'm unable to get the smart card redirection feature working. The HDX channel remains idle even though the workspace app says the device is correctly optimized.

I have done all the normal steps of enabling class 0b on both client and server and allowing USB rediretion and UPnP. I have verified with the same GPO settings on a server 2016 - here it works from the same client.


Has anyone successfully done smart card redirection on Server 2019?

It turns out smart card redirection is also affected by remote desktop session host policies blocking smart cards. This was part of our default policy on our 2019 servers. So changing the policy Computer / administrative templates, windows components, Remote Desktop Services, Remote Desktop Session Host, Device and Resource Redirection - "Do not allow smart card device redirection" to not configured fixed the issue.


Sometimes I need to remember to look at other policies and settings than just Citrix specific ones. :)
