We are currently testing a new SharePoint 2013 solution, and both my Global and Current navigation will suddenly only display "Error". When I hover over the link, I get the following error:

An Error Occurred While Rendering Navigation For Requested URL. Exception Message: The Context Has Expired And Can No Longer Be Used

I've tried two different solution I've found on the Internet:

- Set a time zone for web applications
- Set Web Page Security Validation expiration to "Never"
- Turn off Security Validation

But it still keeps happening. The time on the server itself is correct, so I'm not sure what else I can do. The environment is a single SharePoint server running all roles, and a single SQL server handling that. We have a small environment, so it does the job for us.

People mention an iisreset fixes the issue, and it does, but doing this every time this issue occurs is not ideal.

Under site setting of the site collection, check that the navigation setting are correct. It might have defaulted to use meta data navigation, which might not be correct for your environment. Select one of the other methods of navigation and it may start working correctly for you.

Hope that helps

Thanks for the tip, but it wound up having to do with a change I made to the token-timeout property. I was trying to cut down on the time SharePoint takes to sync changes I was making in AD as I am nesting groups.
