View Full Version : OSXServer: Display more than 250 Users on the Login Window (Yosemite)

Tricky one for any OS X server administrators.

Since an upgrade to Yosemite OS X Server.

Clients running OS X 10.10 can no longer display more than 250 users at the login window. Prior versions did not have this issue or limit.

I am desperate to find a solution that will allow me to still list the users (icons) at the login window in full.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Primary school Matt? if you can't find a solution the best thing I can recommend is to have them enter "Firstname Lastname" instead of a username which they're likely to forget, it'll only become an issue if and when you have more than one kid with the same name.

Only other thing I can think of is a modification to com.apple.loginwindow using "defaults write com.apple.loginwindow blah blah blah" and changing the length but I'm not sure what the property you need to set is, a quick Google didn't reveal anything.
