OTP - How to get to the OTP-dialogue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi People,

    My setup:
    DA on Server 2012 R2 with Windows 10 Enterprise Threshold 2 update clients.

    I've implemented a DirectAccess-solution which does not require the users to type their OTP-password when logging in.
    The need for a OTP-password is only required the moment you need to access information that is considered confidential.

    In this case that means our CMS-system.

    So far, the only way to get to the dialogue (as far as I can see) is by doing the following:

    - Click the network connection icon on the taskbar to bring up the connectionlist
    - Click where it says Action Needed at the top
    - Click again where it says Action Needed in the following dialogue
    - Click Continue
    - Press Ctrl+Alt+Del
    - Type password

    This isn't particularly user-friendly.
    Is there any shortcut for bringing up the Ctrl+Alt+Del dialogue to type the OTP-password?

    I tried to call c:\windows\system32\CredentialUIBroker.exe directly, but no cigar.

    Any ideas?

    Regards
    Øystein Hansen

    Not possible. It was the same problem with Windows 8. User-experience is perfect with Windows 7 only.

  • Hi BenoitS,

    Thank you for your answer.
    I will just have to teach my users this technique.

    I hope MS makes this easier in future updates of W10.

  • Hi

    Would be a good Idea. Not sure it' in the top priorities of Microsoft.
