Server 2012 R2 stuck on "Please wait for the User Profile Service"

We have ADS with Windows Server 2012 R2 and some other servers with same OS. Today we have restarted this server. It was booted successfully and gave logon screen. I have logged on normally with domain admin account. After that it is stucked and moving windows wait circle and says " Please wait for the User Profile Service".

I have searched and googled for this, also on expert-Exchnge old forums for this. But nothing i got.

Please help.

Please note , this is virtual server created in Hyper-V.

This is often group policy processing. A few things can cause it to stall. Printer driver deployment, software installation via GPO (GPSI) or a login script. If any of these have errors GPclient processing waits for the error to resolve. It will eventually time out (60 minutes is standard) and finish logging in. Then you can look at event logs and address the underlying error.

what happens if you log in with a different user, could be profile specific. for troubleshooting purposes create another user same permissions let us know what happens when you try to logon.

what happens if you disconnect the network cable, if there is a DNS issue this will resolve it temporarily and allow you to connect.

Is the server pointing to itself for DNS? Is the DNS role installed on this server?

What is the DNS of the server. Is the DNS role installed on the Active Directory server, and is the server told to point to itself for DNS.

I had an issue where my DC wouldn't allow me to log in locally or remotely. It gave the error, "Please wait for the User Profile Service" and would appear to lock up if I was in the VMWare console window and wouldn't allow me to log in remotely via RDP. It would simply spin trying to connect. I could view services on the DC but I could not view any of the event logs. Waiting until after hours I finally powered down / powered up the DC keeping my fingers crossed that it wasn't anything more serious and I would at the very least be able to log in and view the event logs on the DC. What I found was a Browser issue with one of my remote systems across a tunneled interface yelling at the DC that it was the master browser. As it turns out my partner re-enabled the browser service on all network workstations and also installed WINS on the DC. Needless to say, the Computer Browser service is now turned back off, WiNS has been removed and DNS is working just fine.....
