Registry Size Windows 2000 Terminal Server

Hardware: Dell Poweredge 1750, quad proc, 4gig Ram x 15
Software: Windows 2000 sp4 (running as terminal server) and Citrix Metaframe XP
Enviroment: Active Directory w/GPO's

Here is the problem. Right now we have the registry size set at 140mb. At reboot the server uses 63mb. When we get around 35 to 40 users on it the registry grows to between 101mb and 109mb, at this point the box becomes unstable and we get issues ranging from registry errors and not being able to log into the box. Now, does anyone know if maybe just setting the registry size higher might help this? Is it just set to low?

Are you seeing events in the event viewer indicating problems with unloading user profiles?  If so maybe this might help:

I found the problem however that tool you pointed me to was pretty cool so I will award you the points. The problem was that we were running out of page pool with as many users as we had logging into the box. We upped the page pool to allow maximum expansion and it worked like a charm. Here is the fix.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
Value name: PagedPoolSize
Data type: REG_DWORD
Radix: Decimal
Value data: 0xffffffff

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
Value name: PoolUsageMaximum
Data type: REG_DWORD
Radix: Decimal
Value data: 40

Good fix on memory management, Glad to hear you got the issue resolved.  Sure would be nice if we could have better access to tech docs regarding all aspects of the system.  Many times I find registry entries with no definitions from MS.
