Log on Domain problem

By qmd61 ·
I have SBS Windows 2000 DC with 40 client licences but only have 30 users on my Network. User client (XP and 2K) on my Domain sometime have problem to connect to DC with error message:

"No more connections can be made to this remote computer at this time because there are already as many connections as the computer can accept"

The problem is jump from one PC to another.

To fix this problem I have to reboot the DC
several time a day. Also the problem will go away if I try to use LMHOST file.

Does any one have a clue what is going on? Please help

Sounds like your DC is not configured properly for licencing. Did you set the server up as per server or per seat? Are you aware of this? In per server mode, only the configured amount of concurrent logons is permitted, in per seat mode all users are permitted to logon whenever they like/concurrently. You should set your server to per seat, given the size of your network.

You can change licencing mode (only one chance) by using the licencing snap in (START, ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS, LICENCING). Right click on your server, select properties, click edit and change licencing mode to PER SEAT.

Let me know if this cures the problem.

Cheers & good luck

Small Business Server only runs in one licensing mode. 50 connections. No more. That includes ALL computers whether they are member servers, workstations, remote computers. It isn't based upon the # of users. You can have 1000 user accounts, but only 50 computers can connect to the SBS network. Built in limitation. If you have more than 50 computers connecting to your network, and you want to continue to use Small Business Server you'll have to upgrade to SBS 2003 which increases the # of concurrent connections to 75, or go to W2K server.
