Virtual server windows 2008 64bit, I had to turnoff server , since network location service couldn't be restarted, and users couldn't scan to destination This resolved the issue with scanning, once server came back up. Then I waited for for 10 min, prior to logging on. I have tried my domain administrator profile and another profile , and it takes along time to log on. Once it does logon , then I get a blank screen.  This is my file/print server, I require access to this server.
please let me now what can be done.

This is a virtual guest server in a hyperv san. This server has 16gb memory allocated. This only starting happening when server was low on drive space. I freed up space, but as stated earlier, I had to turn off server within my logon, then after server came back up, I have only got a blank screen once logged on. I have tried logging on to local admin account an not from a domain account, but still just a spinning welcome screen. I need to have access to this server since all my printers are running from here.  this is my file/print server for the entire network.

This can be happens when DC is not reachable to file server or there are complicated scripts running during user logon \ server startup

Which virtualization platform server is running ?

Start virtual disk service on file server in auto mode and  check
Also you can try workaround mentioned in below article and check if it works

Mahesh, I appreciate the article on kdc. I was able to logon to server by restoring the administrator user profiles, then booting up in safe mode, then restarting normally.

I resolved the situation on my own.  I was able to logon to server by restoring the administrator user profiles, then booting up in safe mode, then restarting normally.
