Login hangs at "Please wait for User Profile Service" for >2 minutes -- AD Accounts with Local Profiles RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm used to seeing delays with, "Please wait for the user profile service" when dealing with roaming profiles but we've been having an interesting issue lately.

    Active Directory users logging into workstations that DO NOT have roaming profiles configured have to wait for 2-5 minutes on, "Please wait for the user profile service..."

    The event viewer shows:
    The winlogon notification subscriber <Profiles> is taking long time to handle....

    A xperf trace just shows "Profiles" (under Winlogon) taking anywhere from 100 to 300 seconds.

    Any ideas for things to try?
