The recurring messages that are seen are similar to these:

3/05 09:28:03.40 SDM125PRI domsrvr 19364 ERROR sec_mgr.c 3859 Unable to find DomSession 1645890540 used by user testUser1 invoked by domsrvr with reply method dob

These messages may be an indication that the user identified in the first message has a session open with Service Desk that has been started but not touched for some time; when the user comes back to the session, it has already timed out.

There may be a pop-up message displayed on the user's system, possibly in a background window, indicating that the session has timed out.

Note that the DomSession identifier, 164589540, in the 2 messages in the example given above, match.


The user identified in the message needs to click on the 'OK' or 'Cancel' button that is in the pop-up window. This will end the session and instruct the user to login again.
