Hi
I have just installed a Windows 2000 Server and set it up as a DNS.  I was working away connecting machines no problem but then I got a message telling me basically that I had NO more Computer Accounts....  I deleted a computer account and obviously I was able to connect another machine, but I can  not seem to connect any more machines to this server.  Does anybody have an explination on this ??

Sounds like you need some more user licenses (CALs).  Depending on how much you paid, you got 5 or 10 CALs with it.

Will my network stop some of my machine from accessing the network the?  And how can I tell which machines will be effected?

Also is there a way I can tell hom many CALS I have?

Thanks

Licenses are used as connections are made.  If the limit is hit, no one else can connect until an existing connection is released.

Alas, only you can estimate the number of simultaneous connections you'll need.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

You installed a domain controller, are attempting to add computers to the domain, and your having problems, correct? What mode did you install the server in, per server or per seat?

All I installed the server on a perseat basis.  However I have resolved this problme.  In Administrative Tools there is a License feature where you can add additional licenses to the network.  Obviously you will need to purchase licneses - which I have since done.  But at least I have my full complement of workstations connected to the network.  Thanks Microsoft for not allowing licenses to be setup during installation of the OS
