Troubleshooting ======================================= UPGRADING PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF BIOLOGON ======================================= It is strongly recommended that you update all existing installations of BioLogon to the version included on this CD.
This version contains features and quality improvements not found in earlier versions of BioLogon. Updating all installations of BioLogon on your network will ensure that you will be able to fully utilize the latest features and enhancements without having to worry about any compatibility issues. This is especially important if you will be using newer fingerprint readers, such as the BioTouch PC Card or the BioTouch USB. To update an existing installation of BioLogon, begin by uninstalling the previous version. This is done through the Add/Remove Programs applet in the Control Panel. Once the previous version of BioLogon has been removed, you can proceed with the standard installation process, described in the BioLogon User Guide. All previously created biometric User accounts will remain intact.
Please review the Known Issues section of this document for more information on uninstalling previous versions of BioLogon. If you have an existing installation of the Client/Server edition of BioLogon, it is recommended that you begin by updating all copies of BioLogon Server on the Domain Controllers before updating the Clients. ================== BIOLOGON UTILITIES ================== BioLogon installation CD includes useful utilities located in the Utils folder. BioLogon Utilities may help you to identify and solve possible problems. Refer to the file Utils.txt that contains the description of BioLogon Utilities. ======================== WINDOWS 95/98/Me SUPPORT ======================== BioLogon 3 is optimized for Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.
Users of Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me can utililze biometric authentication by installing BioLogon 2.03. For convenience, we have included the complete BioLogon 2.03 release of on this CD. The installation files for BioLogon 2.03 are contained in the 'Previous Versions' folder. To install BioLogon 2.03 on a computer running Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Me, locate and run Setup.exe in the appropriate subfolder for the language and edition of BioLogon you would like to install.
For more information on the Desktop and Client/Server editions, see the MoreInfo.txt file in the BioLogon.203 folder. =================== THIN CLIENT SUPPORT =================== To enable remote biometric authentication on a Windows 2000 Server running Terminal Services or a Windows 2000 Server running Citrix MetaFrame, simply install BioLogon 3 and a BioTouch USB reader.
Once the system has been rebooted, it will support authenticating remote users. On the Client side, the Identix Fingerprint Reader Components must be installed. On a PC, this can be accomplished by installing them directly from the BioLogon 3 CD. Users of Thin Client terminals will need to obtain a firmware update containing these components. Creepypasta Pdf Downloads. (Please check the Identix web site for the latest list of supported Thin Client devices.) In addition, a BioTouch USB reader must be attached to the Client.
Note: At this point, BioLogon does not support Microsoft’s Terminal Services Advanced Client. ==================================== KNOWN ISSUES - ALL OPERATING SYSTEMS ==================================== ** READER MAY REQUIRE MANUAL TUNING IN CERTAIN LIGHT CONDITIONS: Certain lighting conditions may cause the automatic tuning of the fingerprint reader to not optimally identify a finger for authentication. In addition, if the lighting conditions at the fingerprint reader location vary over time, the User may need to re-tune the reader to compensate for these lighting changes. Results from these conditions may cause the User to get an unusually high amount of fingerprint rejections or errors stating that a valid fingerprint could not be detected. If these conditions occur, the User should first attempt to automatically tune the fingerprint reader again by using the Tune button on the Fingerprint Reader tab of the BioLogon Security Control Panel applet.
If there is no improvement, the User should manually adjust the Brightness slider on the Fingerprint Reader tab to make the fingerprint image slightly darker. The Presence value is directly based upon the Brightness setting. A User should verify that a Presence value of greater than 50% is obtained with a casual finger presentation. ** TWO FINGER LOGON & OLDER BIOLOGON CLIENTS: Users whose account is configured to use the two-finger logon feature cannot use older BioLogon clients for logging into a Windows Domain. Upon attempting to log on, the User will see an error message that begins, 'Could not load message from module '. To provide full support for the latest features in BioLogon 3, please update all clients to the latest version of the software. ** UPDATING A BIOMETRIC WORKSTATION POLICY: When updating a Biometric Workstation Policy, it is important to exercise care.
Make sure at least one User account with Administrative privileges will be able to access the workstation after the changes. Failure to do so may prevent any further administrative changes on the workstation. ** UNINSTALLING BIOLOGON: Within BioLogon, it is possible to configure User accounts to use random passwords. Such accounts should be updated to use a non-random password prior to uninstalling BioLogon.
Otherwise, the User will not be able to log on once BioLogon has been uninstalled. ** CANCELLING UNINSTALLATION: Do not cancel the uninstallation of BioLogon, once it has started. Doing so can prevent BioLogon from successfully being installed or uninstalled in the future. If uninstallation was started in error, allow the process to complete.
Afterwards, BioLogon can be re-installed. ** CANCELLING SILENT INSTALLATION: Do not cancel the silent installation of BioLogon, once it has started. Doing so can prevent BioLogon from successfully being installed or uninstalled in the future. If the installation was started in error, allow the process to complete. Afterwards, BioLogon can be uninstalled. ========================= KNOWN ISSUES - WINDOWS XP ========================= ** BLANK PASSWORDS & BIOLOGON: By default Windows XP has a policy that limits accounts with blank passwords to console logon functionality only.
This policy prevents the authentication procedure during fingerprint enrollment for User accounts with blank password. It is possible to disable this security policy. However, we recommend keeping this policy in place and simply requiring all BioLogon Users to have a non-blank password. If this approach is adopted, it is important to note that all new User accounts are created with blank passwords. To avoid any conflicts with BioLogon, it is necessary to explicitly set a password for all newly created User accounts. ** BIOSHIELD & FAST USER SWITCHING: At this time, BioShield does not support the Fast User Switching feature in Windows XP.
When installed, the BioShield service will start each time a User logs into the system. However, if the system is “switched” to another User, without the first User logging off, BioShield will not be available to the second User.
Once the system has been switched back to the first logged on User, BioShield will resume its normal function. ** INSTALLING A USB FINGERPRINT READER WITH BIOLOGON SOFTWARE To install BioLogon and a BioTouch USB fingerprint reader on Windows XP, start by plugging the reader into an available USB port. Within a short period of time, the New Hardware Wizard should appear. Cancel the Wizard dialog. Once you have done this, insert the BioLogon CD and follow the on-screen instructions. =========================== KNOWN ISSUES - WINDOWS 2000 =========================== ** BIOLOGON & ACTIVE DIRECTORY: When installing BioLogon on multiple Domain Controllers within the same Domain, it is important to begin with the server that is configured as the Active Directory Schema Master.
Installing the software on the Domain Controllers in a different order may result in a delay before fingerprints can be enrolled in BioLogon. ** CHANGES IN THE USER ACCOUNT DO NOT BECOME EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: This situation takes place if your domain has multiple domain controllers.
Due to design of Active Directory it may take several minutes or more before Windows 2000 will replicate all the User account modifications from one domain controller to the other domain controllers. Consequently until the replication is completed the User policy or fingerprints could be different on different domain controllers.
That may result that for the short period of time after enrollment the User cannot logon with fingerprint or smart card. ** BIOLOGON AND WINDOWS USER ACCOUNTS ARE NOT SYNCHRONIZED: If the domain has multiple domain controllers and BioLogon Security System is not installed on all of them, Windows and BioLogon User accounts may become unsynchronized.
As a result, the User may see an additional prompt requesting the entry of the new password. To avoid this, install BioLogon Security System on all the domain controllers in the domain, or use the following practice: - Do not change User domain password from a workstation that does not have BioLogon installed. - Do not reset a User's domain password via the Set Password feature within Active Directory Users and Computers dialog.
** UNINSTALLING BIOLOGON SECURITY PACK: The uninstallation program for BioLogon Security System does not automatically remove the BioLogon Security Pack components under Windows 2000. Uninstalling BioLogon before uninstalling Security Pack will leave Security Pack in an inoperable state. This condition is uncorrectable.
To avoid this problem, please be sure to uninstall Security Pack before uninstalling BioLogon. ========================= KNOWN ISSUES - WINDOWS NT ========================= ** REMOTE ACCESS & MULTIPLE WINDOWS DOMAIN CONTROLLERS: BioLogon User credentials will not be automatically replicated Between multiple Windows NT Domain Controllers. This may result in a User being prompted to enter his or her Remote Access password on more than one occasion. ** RERUNNING SERVICE PACK 3 ON WINDOWS NT AFTER BIOLOGON SECURITY SYSTEM INSTALLATION MAY CAUSE ERROR: The User may receive a service startup error upon subsequent reboot of the machine after rerunning the NT service pack 3 installation if the BioLogon Security System has been previously installed. If this occurs, restart the machine and the message should not appear.
** RERUNNING SERVICE PACK 3/4/5 ON WINDOWS NT AFTER BIOLOGON SECURITY SYSTEM INSTALLATION MAY CAUSE MICROSOFT LOGON GINA TO BE SELECTED: Rerunning the Windows NT service pack 3 installation may cause the Microsoft Logon GINA to display. This is the initial logon screen that prompts for User Name, Domain and Password. The Biometrics Logon Interface adds support for fingerprint logon. To set the Biometrics Logon Interface again, run the BioLogon Security Control Panel Applet for Windows NT.
Select the Components tab and verify that there is a checkmark in the Biometrics Logon Interface box. Clear the check box and recheck it, then click OK to reapply.
When the system is restarted, the User is able to log on using a registered fingerprint. ** RERUNNING SERVICE PACK 3/4/5 OR INSTALLING INTERNET EXPLORER ON THE COMPUTER WITH THE BIOLOGON SECURITY SYSTEM CAN CHANGE LOGIN CONFIGURATION: The system can revert to Microsoft Logon Interface after the service pack or Internet Explorer are installed on the machine configured for biometrics logon. To try and resolve any such conditions, the User should do the following: - Select the Start->Run. - Enter the following command and parameter and then click the OK button to execute: regsvr32 rsabase.dll Reboot the system.
This registers certain Internet Explorer components and is a recommended action from Microsoft. After rebooting, the BioLogon Security System should become active and prompt the User for logon information. For Windows 95/98/Me you may need to set the Biometric Client as your Primary Network Logon via Control Panel Network Properties. ** BIOLOGON SECURITY SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK WITH FRENCH (STANDARD) REGIONAL SETTINGS: If the BioLogon Security System is installed on the French release of Microsoft Windows NT it will not work if the regional settings (locale) are set to French (Standard). The BioLogon Security System will run fine if the regional settings are set to French (Belgian, Canadian, Luxembourg, or Swiss).
This behavior is due to the fact that Microsoft CSP (Crypto Provider) does not support encrypt functionality in France because of the French import laws. If you need to install the BioLogon Security System on French version of Windows NT check that your regional settings are not French (Standard). ** JAPANESE VERSION OF BIOLOGON SECURITY SYSTEM FOR WINDOWS NT CAN NOT LOGON INTO DOMAIN: Japanese version of BioLogon Security System (client) for Windows NT cannot log the User into the domain running Japanese version of Windows NT if the computer names for domain controllers are in multi-byte characters. A system administrator can fix this problem by changing the computer names of all domain controllers into single byte character set. This change does not require any modifications in the network settings for the domain members because the domain name stays intact. =============== HOW TO GET HELP =============== If you have any problems with this product, first read this file and the BioLogon Security System online help and printed manuals.
