Please wait for local session manager, takes forever
Users are logging into the Windows Server 2008x64 terminal server, and the Please wait for local session manager message appears for 2-10 minutes.  

Any idea why this is happening?

The server has been restarted since the issue has appeared.

it seems the process(LSM.exe) is not releasing resources as each session ends.  I am logging in and out/terminating sessions and the lsm.exe usage just keeps increasing.  I have set up a remote desktop session  timeout period as well as made a user logoff a disconnect but it does not seem to have made any difference on the resources that the lsm.exe is using...the only thing that seems to reset it is restarting the server.

Thanks as always, great community!  I will post back any new findings...........

We're fighting with the same issue the only thing we found up till now is this Microsoft Hotfix.
But we cannot confirm that this will fix the problem, still testing.
