Hello All,

 

Just in case anyone else comes across tis issue I thought I'd record my workaround here. It'll also come in handy if I have to reinstall SnapCenter and encounter the same problem!

 

After installing SnapCenter I was unable to login via the browser. Attempting to do so resulted in the less than useful error message:

 

Due to security reason, the browser session has expired. Please close or refresh the browser and try again.

 

I have tried a variety of browsers and all produced the same error. However I was able to login using PowerShell, make our Domain Admins group SnapCenter admins then login as using an account in the domain admins group. The powershell code you need is:

 

$domain = 'YOUR_DOMAIN'

$smcred = Get-Credential

Open-SmConnection -SMSbaseUrl https://YOUR_SNAPCENTER_SERVER:8146/ -Credential $smcred

Add-SmGroupToRole -Domain $domain -Group 'Domain Admins' -RoleName SnapCenterAdmin

 

Hopefully someone will find this useful, even if it's only me!

 

Regards,

 

Mark

Thank you for this commant.

I also add  following command:

 

Open-SmConnection -SMSbaseUrl https://YOUR_SNAPCENTER_SERVER:8146/ -Credential domain\username

 

After that, i could log in to snapcenter again.

Hi,

 

I just want to make an Update. 

 

Please check if you have any special characters in the password that you are using, since a sign such as “<>”, etc, can cause such a problem in limited occasions.

 

I already solved this problem by changing  my password.
