I am running a windows 2000 terminal server which is running an application for a whole sale business which is not supported my my company. They are having problems with there application and the support people for this application said it was down to the Open file limitation win 2000 has. i have searched for a solution for this and all i can find is http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=190162. it says in there to add a key to rdr\parameters under local\machine within the registry but this key does not exsist on my server. i am running sp4 as it states so any help would be great. there is only 20 users connecting to the server does this limitation apply at a  per user basis( can each user open 2048 files) or can there be only 2048 files open on the terminal server. i know it says per connection but i hate the microsoft word things on there site. if any one can shed some light it would be great. thanks

Hi
The link you've posted refers to the limit in NT - see the section in your link as below:
""Regarding Windows 2000:
The MultipleUsersOnConnection registry value does not exist in Windows 2000 because this is the behavior by default. The limit in Windows 2000 is 8192 simultaneously open file handles per Terminal Server session. ""

I think the support people are perhaps wrong,

Hi
No probs glad to help - The article isn't very clear and because it's listing SP4  it's actually  quite confusing, especially when you're focused on looking for the answer you want. I spent quite a while trying to figure out this open files issue some time ago after being led on a merry dance - Throw it back at them!
