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.



Dear works2011,

I have logged on with another domain admin user, but same thing is happens.



i have now reformatted and recreated domain. Added subnets in Active sites and services. and rebooted server. Now server stuck on same issue" please wait for the user profile service"



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