Problem: ProfileUnity Service(s) fails to start on console host or client



A service timeout may prevent the service from starting completely.

On the affected machine: 

  1. In the Registry Editor, Navigate to the registry subkey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
  2. In the details pane, locate the ServicesPipeTimeout entry, right-click that entry and then select Modify.
    Note: If the ServicesPipeTimeout entry does not exist, you must create it by:
    • Selecting New on the Edit menu, followed by the DWORD Value
    • Type ServicesPipeTimeout  and hit Enter.
  3. Right click on ServicesPipeTimeout  and select Modify
  4. Click Decimal, enter the new timeout value in milliseconds (i prefer 120000), and then click OK
  5. Restart the computer.
