we`re using VPN Client connecting to VPN Concentrator 3015 and ACS 4.1(1) Build 23 Patch 4 with Smartcard Authentication. How can we disable the "Smartcard Removal Feature", so that VPN connections don`t tear down if the card is removed ?

If found some documentations for the ASA but not for Concentrator/ACS.

Many thanks

we can disable the "Smartcard Removal Feature" using the smartcard-removal-disconnect command:

group-policy name attributes

[no] smartcard-removal-disconnect {enable | disable}

Disabling this option configures the Client to leave existing tunnels connected when a SmartCard is removed. Enabling this option configures the Client to disconnect existing tunnels when a SmartCard is removed. This option is enabled by default. The no form of the command removes the command from the configuration and reverts to the default value
