Recently created a new SharePoint 2016 farm using MinRole for application and WFEwithDC on dedicated boxes, all went well. I create two web applications for content and MySites.
I made host entry 127.0.0.1 for both URLS on WFE and host file entry on App Server with IP of WFE to point everything to WFE from both boxes.
Question is when I try to access the site from WFE or App server, home page get stuck at “Working on it” for hours and never loads . I try to go to settings page by entering the URL manually and I was able to go to the page. Any idea why it is stuck at working on it ? So after I change the host file entries on app server to 127.0.0.1 to point the URL to the app server itself ( instead of WFE) and site came up fine. I can delete and recreate those 2 web apps but would like to know what is going on here , is this something to do with MinRole ?
Please share your thoughts comments . Thanks
