Logon stuck at "Please wait for the user profile service"
Why it is what should be a simple thing turns out into a headache of mammoth proportions?
Server 2008r2 DC.
Due to a subnet change I need to change the address of the server. Should be a simple thing right? I thought so. I make the address change and setup a new DHCP scope but none of the clients can connect so from the server I ping the server but I get back an IPv6 address so I’m guessing this if why the clients can’t connect. I flush DNS, clear the DNS cache, restart the server but still no IPv4 address so I disable IPv6 on the NIC and restart. I go to login and now I’m getting “Please wait for the user profile service”. I give it 5 minutes and crash out and try booting into safe mode so I can enable IPv6 again but it won't accept the password. I restart the server normally and try to log in and get the “Please wait for the user profile service” which it has been stuck on for 40 minutes now.
