on my SBS Windows 2000 DC, user on my Network 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"

(I have 30 user over 40 SBS clients licences on my Server.)

To fix this problem I have to reboot the DC several time a day.

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

It seems like your client access licenses are becoming released. You could just try increasing the number of concurrent connections in Licesne Manager. This is personally why I hate this form of licensing due to that fact this seems to happen a lot.

I deal with alot of 1--50 user organizations. I make a habit of setting the licensing to 99 users to avoid these kinds of bugs. Else my clients would be calling me every day to release licenses. If MS ever asks me "why do you have 99 licenses" I would say "well we only have 40 users, but your licensing just doesn't work right". Of course you can painstakingly amend it, but as long as you aren't exceeding your licensed CALs, what you set the licenses to isn't an issue, imho.
