JSI Tip 0368 - How many locally cached profiles are stored?

By default, Windows NT stores up to 5 locally cached profiles. Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and greater store 10 locally cached profiles. You can alter this default by editing:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Edit or Add Value of CachedLogonsCount as type REG_SZ. The valid range is 0 - 50.

See tip 237 for additional Winlogon entries.
