Hi, Linda Taylor here, Senior Escalation Engineer from the Directory Services team in the UK.

I have been working on this issue which seems to be affecting many of you globally on windows 8.1, 2012 R2 and windows 10, so I thought it would be a good idea to explain the issue and workarounds while we continue to work on a proper fix here.

The symptoms are such that after a password change, logon hangs forever on the welcome screen:



How annoying….

The underlying issue is a deadlock between several components including DPAPI and the redirector.

For full details or the issue, workarounds and related fixes check out my post on the ASKPFEPLAT blog here http://blogs.technet.com/b/askpfeplat/archive/2016/01/11/does-your-win-8-1-2012-r2-win10-logon-h...

This is now fixed in the following updates:

Windows 8.1, 2012 R2, 2012 install:

For Windows 10 TH2 build 1511 install:

I hope this helps,

Linda

Hi Linda,

While I am not seeing this issue on Windows 10 Logon on a standard laptop or desktop. I have this issue on Windows 10 virtual machines and I am unable to figure it out how to stop it happening. I have made sure all the required patches are installed. 
i have also written a password rest script with Powershell that non admin users can run, and that also hangs.

 

param (
[string]$oldPassword = $( Read-Host "Old password"),
[string]$newPassword = $( Read-Host "New password")
)
$name = $env:USERNAME
$ad = whoami /fqdn
([ADSI]"LDAP://$ad").ChangePassword("$oldPassword","$newPassword")

 

The links to the original post are missing or removed.  Could I ask for some guidance please?
