We have an SBS 2011 which is very slow right now, restarting will leave it hanging on "applying computer settings" for hours before showing me login prompt. After i input credentials, it will stay on "applying user settings" for another 2 hours.
Once i am in, i am barely able to do anything.
i tried checking out if it were some services causing trouble. I tried step by step setting first exchange services to manual, then sharepoint (we dont use that), and trying to locate fault. But to no avail..
I noticed that the AD is not even responding properly, even though the AD services are running.
By the way, i can barely stop or start any of the services. it always take a long time and gives me a error 1053.
I can't access \\domain.local and running dcgpofix gives me "Could not open the active directory object LDAP://rootDSE.
In safemode everything runs fast though.
I also tried running sfc /scannow, it just hangs (even after hours) and dism doesnt work either.
File replication service won't start. Same goes for:
Kerberos key distribution center
link layer topology discovery
It doesn't matter what service i try to start, when i try to start them it will try for a long time and then give me an error about not responding in a timely fashion.
I got access to event viewer if needed.
