Is it common that Creating Web App "Portal" takes ages?

while writing this post the task Creating Web App "Portal" is still running but it does already for over 25 minutes, unsure what to do now?!

I'm not getting any messages like errors or something else...

This is not normal. I would suggest deleting the web application, rebooting the servers and re-running the script (it can be ran multiple times with no issues).

To delete the WebApp run "Get-SPWebApplication | ? {$_.DisplayName -eq "Portal"} | Remove-SPWebApplication" in PowerShell.

Hi Ivan,

unfortunately the script again comes up to the same point and then nothing is happening, even the log files do not show anything that would give any hint why it takes so long or is not giving any response/error..
