Post-install hang on 10.2.1 when accessing Administrator: endless "Please Wait"

I have installed Server 10.2.1 on a Win 2012 server. Everything runs fine during installation. When accessing http://localhost:6080/arcgis/manager/, I am immediately greeted with an endless "Please Wait" dialogue. I do not get a dialogue for login name. Going to http://localhost:6080/arcgis/ shows a normal looking server window (albeit with no content).

This behavior is the same using fully qualified domains or ip addresses, using Chrome or IE, with firewall on or off, from an outside box or inside the server. It is also the same if I log in to the box as the arcgis user.  These are all the solutions I've found in other discussions.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
