SBS 2011 - Stuck on Welcome
Posted on 2012-03-30
We had to move a clients server into the new building, this server is a newer Dell T310 with SBS 2011, serving a very small office (6 Computers).
We tried to log into the server to shut it down but it wasn't responding and froze on the welcome screen after we typed in the credentials. The staff was able to work on files at this point. We force shut down the server and moved to new building. On boot up it is gets to the login screen, and I can type the credentials but then gets stuck on the Welcome page with the spinning ball. I can get into Safe Mode, I do not see any errors that pop up in event viewer. During when it is stuck in the Welcome screen the hard drive lights are blinking away. If I try to log in and it stays on the Welcome screen it seems like it then hangs 5-10 minutes after.
Any ideas? I do not want to do a domain rebuild. I haven;t been to this site in a while, the last updates were 2/29 and one was the Rollup 6 for Exchange and Rollup 1 for SBS.
I can't uninstall them in Safe Mode so not sure.
