Well with NT it was like 156, with 2k its in the mid 2's to 290 or so (80%
of the non-paged pool, do the math)


Anyway Up the RSL to 150, see if it keeps expanding.


I know with FR2 one of the problems was that the Hkey_users .Default would
get large with large numbers of users, Citrix was caching a a bunch of
printer garbage in there. It was fixed in FR 3 with a specific Hotfix

Hi Chad,


On win2k theoretical registry max is 216 MB so I'd certainly increase it
beyond 100 MB.


However if you're maxing out, and user numbers haven't increased, you've
possibly also got a  problem with either bloated user profiles (ntuser.dat)
or excessive grwoth/freagmentation in the Software hive. Software generally
should be no biggere than 30-35 MB or you may have a problem.


It's worth running regcompact against one of your servers (after aa backup).
This has worked very well for me and can often hugely reduce the size of the

Suddenly my registry on my servers is becoming full.  It is set to 100MB.  

What is the suggested size?
