Hi, kidznetworks,

Windows 2000 Server and above comes with 2 mode of Terminal Service: Remote Administration mode and Application Server mode.

Remote Administration mode only have 2 users available.  In order to increase more, you need to switch to "Application Server Mode".

Here is the link show you how to switch to "Application Server Mode"

Note:  It allows you to use up to 90 days.  After that, you need to buy the Terminal License for continue usage.

Hope this help!

After 90 days in Application Mode you are required to set up a Terminal Server licensing server.  Every Windows 2000 Pro and Windows XP Pro Workstation gets a "free" Terminal Server license from the server when requested.  This is different then having or coming with a Terminal Server license in that you can't use Linux workstations as terminal clients under the assumption that you Windows 2000 Pro copies keep you in compliance with Terminal Server Client licenses.

To change from Remote Administration to Application Mode go to Add/Remove Programs, Windows Components, and change anything with Terminal Server checked for install.  Every time this runs you are prompted for which mode you want Terminal Server to operate in.  Choose Application Mode if you want to switch.

Be forewarned, installing software in Application Mode is more difficult.  Use the following commands to install software on a Terminal Server in Application Mode:

change user /query
To find out which mode your Terminal Server is in (default is execute)

change user /install
To put the server in install mode

change user /execute
To put the server back in execute mode after an install.

If you install software in Application Mode without being in install mode you open yourself to the possibility of interesting registry issues with your user base.
