Server 2008 Hangs on Please Wait for the User Profile Service

Evening all,

When logging into the server through the Admin or other admin enabled accounts after entering the password we hang on 'Please Wait for User Profile Service'.  I have looked at the NIC, DNS and User Profile solutions to no avail.  Am I missing anything?

Cheers

Richard

Hi Guys,

Upto now I would say it's a permanent hang.  Certainly moves no further forward in 3 hours.

Event Viewer has the following entries

Error : Publishing the Key Management Service to DNS in the 'Pearson.local' Domain Failed.
Info : hr=0x8007232D
Error : Unable to open the Server Service Performance Object.  The first four bytes (DWORD) of the data section contains the status code
0
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi All,

Fix was easy as the following...

- Enter Safe Mode
- MS Config
- 'Hide all Microsoft Services'
- 'Disable all'

Restart and then build up the services you need for your software once logged in.

Cheers for the help

No doubt there is a more permanent solution out there but this worked and allowed me to get staff working again.
