[arin-tech-discuss] Why does ORG registration fail?

Hello Lorraine,

It’s failing because NET-12-235-239-220-1 (the net handle in your URL) does not exist. In general, a sensible approach would be to always use the net handle of your direct allocation (in this case, NET-12-0-0-0-1) in the URL. You can rely on that existing (until/unless you no longer have that direct allocation, which is something we can reasonably forecast won’t often happen).

Hope that helps!

Subject: [arin-tech-discuss] Why does ORG registration fail?

We are sending the following ORG registration:

URL: https://reg.arin.net/rest/net/NET-12-235-239-220-1/org?apikey=XXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>




        <name>UNITED STATES</name>






        <line number="1">3513 E Hwy 158</line>







    <orgName>SMITH INDUSTRIES</orgName>

    <dbaName>SMITH INDUSTRIES</dbaName>


        <pocLinkRef description="Admin Poc" function="AD" handle="DEALJ7-ARIN"/>

        <pocLinkRef description="Abuse Poc" function="AB" handle="DEALJ7-ARIN"/>

        <pocLinkRef description="Tech Poc" function="T" handle="DEALJ7-ARIN"/>



The only response we are getting back from ARIN is:

ERROR: The record you identified couldn't be found in the database.

The only record I can think of is wrong is the POC handle, but if you do:


You will see it is there.  Is there something else wrong? I would appreciate any assistance.
