    Session has expired press ok to continue

    robertbreslin

      Hi All

       

      I’m using Orion Platform 2017.3, IPAM 4.5.2

      I have this connected to a BIND 9 RedHat 7 DNS server “BIND 9.9.4-RedHat-9.9.4-51.el7 (Extended Support Version)”

       

      Everything looks right but when I try add, delete or edit a DNS record from the GUI I get “Session has expired press ok to continue”

      The GUI locks up and becomes unusable and after about 20 minutes NAMED reloads on the DNS server and as soon as it does the GUI starts to respond

       

      Once NAMED reloads the new entry is in DNS but if I try delete or edit it I get an error asking me to rescan the DNS server

       

      Has anyone come across this issue

       

      Thanks

      Rob

          Hi all

           

          I think I found the issue but how to work around it is another question

           

          Our forwarded lookup zone file is 4Mb in size and has 1956788 records (A, AAAA and CName)

          If I delete loads of records from this file and get it below 2Mb all works with no issue but as soon as I go over the 2Mb the issue starts

           

          Is there a limitation on the size of any one zone or is anyone aware of a workaround for lager zones

           

          Thanks

          Rob

            SolarWinds has confirmed the 2Mb limitation on Zone files

            Each zone must be smaller than 2MB or the session will time out before it can add a record to the DNS server

             

            quote "reducing the DNS file zone size below 2mb is the only way that we can make it work with IPAM"

             

            Regards
