Mojave upgrade - Maximum number of user accounts

(Garth S.) #1


I’ve recently upgraded a 2016 imac from Sierra to Mojave and the first issue has popped up - we have individual user accounts for the family and one shared one for a total of 5 accounts. Once all five are logged into at once and the login screen is switched to, we are unable to log in via the UI and get an error of “The maximum number of logged in user accounts has been reached.” Other google searches suggest that a limit of 5 was instituted with High Sierra but we’re not trying to log into a sixth but rather one of the five from the login screen. Can this limit be changed?


(I was able to ssh in and one of the loginwindow processes and then log in via the UI).
