File server not allow users to log on

By kathiee ·
I recently set up our NT server as a file server for our network Macintosh computers. Now after a certain amount of users logon, I get a message on the Macs "The file server will not allow any additional users to log on. Try again later." This comesup when the Mac user initially enters the password to log onto the server. The NT users can log on to their machines as usual, but when they try to access a shared resource on the server, access is denied for the same reason. Help!

Try this:

Open Server Manger
Highlight the server in question
Click on the MacFile drop-down box and click on properties.

On the Attributes tab there is a spot to set the number of sessions to Unlimited. Make sure this is checked and rebootthe server. Hope that helps!

Do you have a license limitation. IF so stop and disable the license server.

Check your license information. Go to Programs/Administrative Tools/License Manager and click Products View..
You can see how many seats the system is set to support. The off the shelf version has 5, so you may need to add some licenses. Remember, you can change from per seat to per server licensing once, so be sure if you decide to do that.
