Can't create new user group



I'm trying to create a new user group. In the web client I go to Setup > System Administration > User Groups, and I see my 47 existing user groups. (I've done this a few times before :-)) At the bottom of the page, I click "New User Group", and I get a blank white page with a spinning gray progress circle -- 15 minutes later, it's still spinning.

Everything else I've tried is working fine. This is PRTG, but I got the same results with the earlier 13.3.5. (I did the upgrade to see if it would fix this. It didn't). I've restarted the PRTG service, rebooted the PRTG server, but still no luck.

Any ideas?

After you click on adding the new user group, does the URL actually change, displaying "/editusergroup.htm?id=new&tabid=1"? If not, can you try entering this behind the IP address and check if that loads the page?

Yes, the URL changes to "/editusergroup.htm?id=new&tabid=1", and the browser finishes loading the URL quickly. I can see the heading, the menu bar, the status bar, the "Add User Group" title, and the bottom status bar & links. It's only the main window with a white background (with a "Settings" tab at the top) that is blank, with the spinning gray progress wheel.

At the bottom right of the window, a popup box appears for a few seconds with:

Ajax Error PE1111: timeout

This happens with both Chrome and Firefox on a Linux box, and Chrome, Firefox, and IE on a Windows box.

If you are seeing this with the latest release, please forward us your log files for analysis, as outlined under How can I upload log files to Paessler support team?

Beyond that, please also forward us a screenshot of the entire "Setup -> PRTG status -> System status" page. Please refer to this thread in the ticket.
