 Frequently Encountered Problems


  1. Existing AS-SET object is not displayed on MyAFRINIC

    If your existing AS-SET does not include your organisation’s ORG-HDL, it will not be displayed under the IRR page on MyAFRINIC. If you wish to manage the AS-SET on the MyAFRINIC portal, you will have to edit your AS-SET and add your org-hdl to it. See more info ​here​.

  2. Authorisation failed when creating AS-SETs.
