Another session for your user is blocked notifying Local Session Manager for 0 minutes

I have hyper-v VM running on my win-10 laptop. After some time, when I resume the VM after I was temporarily off, I get a message:

Another session for your user is blocked notifying Local Session Manager for 0 minutes so we are unable to log you in.

Do you want to force logoff that session to continue?

Why I'm getting this message? How do I continue in that session instead of forcing logoff?

I am experiencing this issue as well but it is every Monday morning after patches/updates have been pushed via SCCM/SMS and the computer has been rebooted by Software Center as well. I am still working from home so I use Remote Desktop to remote into a desktop computer from either my iPad or my HP laptop. When this issue occurs, I am not signed into the desktop from any other location, yet it says that another session for your user is blocked notifying user profile service.

The computer I am attempting to remote into is running: Windows 10 Enterprise, Version 21H1, Installed on ‎6/‎9/‎2021, OS build 19043.1110, Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0.

I am realizing that this has happened every Monday since I installed this version of the Windows 10 OS. I have to ask a staffer to go by my desk and hard shut down by pushing the power button, then power it back up, at which point I can remote into it with no issues. One time, two weeks ago, I was able to use BeyondTrust (previously known as Bomgar) to remote to the desktop, reboot it, and then sign in, but today I tried to do that for hours and still could not get signed in.

I do not have two instances of my profile in the registry and I am really not sure what to try to resolve this.

Any ideas?

That seems to be different problem, not related to hyper-v.

Hi,

Thank you for your posting!

Based on your descriptions, I guess you may have multiple user accounts and the error message indicated that more than two sessions (user accounts) were trying to log in your VM at the same time, or different users logged into your VM successively. So I may need more information for your issue:

1) How did you log in to your VM, by Hyper-V Manager or by RDP?

From my experience, you can only make one console connection to a single VM at a time. I believe this was an option in Virtual Server but is now enforced for security reasons for recent versions. So you may need to tell me more detailed information about your login environment.

2) Is this the first time that you encounter this issue?

3) If you have multiple users, what exactly did you do before this problem occurred? For instance, every time you switch users, will the next user log in like this? Or every time the previous user logs out, the next user logs in and prompts this?

4) Can you click 'yes', close the session first and then try to restart your VM?

Thank you for your support!

Best regards
Joan

Hi Joan,

If you are still monitoring this, I am seeing the same behavior as the OP. The answer is that it appears to be a bug with using Enhanced Mode.

If the VM is shutdown while using Enhanced Mode, the error presents itself; if shutdown in Basic Mode, the error does not appear when restarting the VM.

Is there a setting that I am missing to resolve this issue or is it a bug as I suspect?

To answer your questions, everything is installed on my laptop. It's Win10 Pro, latest Hyper-V, Win10 Pro is also the VM OS. To log in, I use the Hyper-V Mgr. This message has been present since I first setup the VM and if I select "YES", the message goes away, the VM "cycles" the same as if you are in it and select Basic/Enhanced Mode from the client menu button bar and comes back with the Windows' login for the VM. I am the only user on my laptop and on this VM so there is no other user involved.

Thanks,

Mike

I have the same problem when I shutdown my VM in Enhanced Mode.
Did you manage to solve it?

Hi,

  1. I log in using Hyper-V Manager

  2. It happens repeatedly, each time my VM it turned of automatically (probably because my laptop goes to speel) and I turn it on and continue from last state

  3. I always use the same user.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply!

Based on your descriptions, can you first go to event viewer>> Applications and Services Logs>> Microsoft>> Windows>> Hyper-V VMMS, to see if you have any other error messages or codes related to your issue. If not, then your issue may be concerned with your VM itself other than Hyper-V host.

Thank you for your patience!

Best regards
Joan
