The TS limits two connections even
the TS licensing server has been installed
The company had a problem to transfer
(2003) TS licensing server from one 2003 server to another 2003 server. I
called MS support to activate and install the TS CALs in the new server.
Now, the both TS and TS licensing server are started; the TS configuration
displays per user license; the lsview also displays the TS licensing server
(it also DC).
it doesn’t allow more than 2 users logon.
2. If the third user tries to logon, he
will receive “The maximum number of connections were exceeded at the remote
3. If you open the TS licensing server
Tool, it takes 20 to 30 second to find the server. Even if I also assign IP
address for the TS discovery method, it also takes over 20 second to find
4. Even the TS licensing server displays
the server is activated, but there is not temporary type licensing. (I think
since there is no temporary license and the client can’t find the TS
licensing server, it switches back to the administrative mode).
5. Domain name issue. They setup domain
name as the same as the domain NetBIOS name. For example, the TS FQDN is
server1.mydomain (no top level name .com or .local) while the domain NetBIOS
is mydomain. So when you ping server1, it displays server.mydomain without
top level name .com or .local.
I think it may be a name resolution issue
or we may need to re-install the TS licensing server. How do you think?
A: We have seen some cases
like this one. By the default, Windows 2003 assigns Maximum connections to 2
for Terminal Services. After installing the TS licensing server, this
limitation hasn't been modified. You may need to madify it manually. To do
that, open Terminal Services Configuration. Right-click on RDP-Tcp and
select Properties. Click Network Adapter and select Unlimited Connections.
