Getting stuck on boot up with "Applying security policy to the system" on a Windows Server 2008.  With Server 2003 I would just set the LSA/Kerberos/Parameters/MaxPacketSize=1 but this reghack doesn't seem to be doing the trick in 2008.

Any other thoughts or ideas?

If so then you can log in and start normal troubleshooting.  Look to make sure DNS is configured correctly on the local lan connection

testing right now, waiting 48 hours and see if our issue comes back, but we appeared to resolve it by running setup.com /PrepareAllDomains

the applying security policy appears to have been just a symptom after we installed Exchange 2007 onto that server.  Looking at the other servers we had successfully install showed the SACL access error.  freaky deaky
