XenApp 6.5 Hangs on logout "User Profile Service"

I am getting many users every day that cannot logout, and then cannot log back in. They get "The task your are trying to do can't be completed because Remote Desktop Services is currently busy."

When I go to locate the user I find that they are no longer listed under users in the taskmgr, and instead I have to use Citrix AppCenter to find the session ID for that user.  

Users get stuck with the following processes:


I have tried many things to resolve this and nothing seems to be working, we have reverted back to an old group policy, I have tried removing the antivirus, Windows Updates, I have tried this hotfix "https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2661332" I have followed the instructions here "http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX130116.?_ga=1.221726800.954835743.1441746016" I tried turning off wsearch..  nothing seems to be working.

running XenApp 6.5 with Server 2008 R2, we are not currently using profile manager.

Is anyone familiar with this and maybe have suggestions on troubleshooting the issue?

Thank you for any help and suggestions, this problem is really starting to get hard to deal with.

Did you installed all the latest windows patches and roll up packs? if not goahead and install the same and check. For details http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX129229

The sessions are basically hung in a down state.  I've seen this multiple times and it can have varying causes.

First off, what patch level are you running?

Disable the Themes and Desktop Window Manager Session Manager services if you are not using Aero.  This causes problems with some Hotfix Rollup Packs.

I need the patch information to assist further.

Sorry to take so long to respond on this, the problem currently seems to have stopped on many servers by modification of the logon/logoff monitoring of our SpectorSoft monitoring software.  I have been trying to see if it is still an ongoing issue, it seems that on many servers it has completely gone away but there are still a few that it remains.  Even on the ones that it remains, they have greatly been reduced as well.

Patch level = xa650w2k8r2x64r06

Not very familiar with that product, but check to see if it has options to add exclusions.  You'd probably want to add exclusions similar to the ones you would add for anti-virus.
