Hi Petr

I get exactly the same behaviour ever so often. We are running IPA server
4.2.0 15.0.1.el7_2.3, (though we got the same problem with earlier releases
too).

In my case the laptop running Firefox / FreeIPA WebUI, and the OEL Server
running the IPA server have time within seconds / milliseconds of one
another. The server uses NTPD (and has full missile lock on the NTP pool
servers), and the laptop uses whatever OSX uses to keep time accurate.

As I only need to use the FreeIPA WebUI rarely (every few months or so) the
exact behaviour is difficult to pin down. It seems to work like this:

a) I will sometimes have access without the "your session has expired"
error. Typically this is when I have not used FreeIPA for a long time
(months).

b) then some days later, when I revisit the WebUI, the "your session has
expired" error will crop up.

c) as I have access to several workstations, each with several browsers
installed (IE, FF, Chrome, Safari etc.), I may get luck and find one that
does not give the error (while the others do).

Just like the OP, the workstations are not FreeIPA hosts (or servers), and
we use login /pw for the WebUI.

It does not matter if the workastation is FreeIPA host when login /pw is used.

When it happens, could you examine Set-Cookie response header of login_password request and its response in browser developer tools.

It would be good to find out if the response is successful(200) and what is the cookie expiration date. If it's not successful, then what is in response and in X-IPA-Rejection-Reason response header.

Hi,

I miss explained myself apparently, here it is:

I open a session with login/password, I do some work, I left it for a
while, the session disconnects which is normal.
I come back, I try to authenticate with login/password it keeps telling
me
: your session has expired.

Regards.

Is there a time difference between a machine with browser and an IPA
server?

Hi,

When accessing the webui of Freeipa from the browser using login
password, I
get your session has expired.


As a workaround I have to either :
- Delete the https certificate of the ipa server from the browser and
delete
history then relogin again.
- Restart ipa services : ipactl restart
- delete cookies in the browser corresponding to IPA server.

PS: The machine I am using to connect to the webui of freeipa is not
enrolled
in it, I am using login/pass to connect not kerberos.
Web UI session is set to 30 minutes or so.
