Updated May 18, 2017

A user is unable to import nodes and the following error message is found in the Core.BusinessLayer log:

ERROR SolarWinds.Orion.Core.Common.CoreErrorHandler - (null)  Error occurred on Business Layer call. Type: System.InsufficientMemoryException

Message: 'Failed to allocate a managed memory buffer of 33554432 bytes. The amount of available memory may be low.'
