Hey Everyone,

Couldn't find a thread that was explaining the same issue, but here it is. Everything was working fine, nothing was modified or changed, but now I am unable to modify anything with regards to groups or users.

I have tried (through the GUI) to do the following, all result in a green box appearing in the GUI saying 'an error has occurred' but nothing is showing in dmesg or /var/log/messages about the error. Is there a separate log for these errors?

FAILED to:
-Add new users
-Add existing users to groups
-Remove existing users from groups
-Add a new group

essentially anything to do with modifying current user/group objects.

Running FreeNAS-9.10.2-U6 (561f0d7a1)


Thanks for any suggestions in advance :)

I love it when I finally give in to ask for help, then solve my own issue....Maybe this will serve to help someone else some day.

Error was a simple TIMEOUT error. For some reason, my session had timed out, but it didn't actually kick me out of the FreeNAS GUI to the Logon dialogue box. I realized the issue when I tried to do something completely unrelated to users/groups (open the shell from the GUI) and it didn't let me do it.

I simply logged out, then logged back into the GUI and........Boom goes the dynamite!

:)
