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

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.
