Hello,

I have a problem to change with CLM the Admin key in Smartcards, with a
Microsoft Base CSP, in this case Gemalto's cards. I can initialize these
cards with a new Admin key selecting diversify Admin Key in the template
profile, after I issue a new card with CLM the Admin Key changes, for example
to 00..0001, and I can retire and reuse this card any times that I need. The
problem appear when I want use these cards in another profile template, I
cannot initialize these cards (I think because de Admin Key isn’t the
standard: 00..0000) and I cannot find where specify the actual key of the
card.

It’s possible specify in CLM the actual Admin Key in the profile template?
If this not possible is any way to change the Admin Key to reset to the
original situation?

Thanks,
