SlowLinkTimeOut

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Data type

Range

Default value

REG_DWORD

0–120,000 milliseconds

2000 (2 seconds)

Description

Defines which connections Winlogon considers to be slow. If the server storing a user's profile does not respond before the time specified in the value of this entry expires, Winlogon considers the link to the server to be slow, and it offers the user the option of using a profile stored on the local computer instead of waiting for the server.

This entry is used only when the value of SlowLinkDetectEnabled is 1.

You can increase the value of SlowLinkTimeOut to favor the server-based profile. This is particularly useful for clients using addresses assigned by Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) or for computers accessing server-based profiles over slow wide-area-network connections, such as dial-up connections.

Change method

To change the value of this entry, use Group Policy. This entry corresponds to the Slow network connection timeout Group Policy (Computer Settings\Software Policies\Windows NT User Profiles).

Note Image Note

Windows 2000 does not add this entry to the registry. You can add it by editing the registry or by using a program that edits the registry.
