your only allowed two remote connectiond (in remote admin mode) if your in application mode you need TS licensing for it to work

Change Between Remote Administration and Application Server Mode;EN-US;238162

on the server Start >programs >admin tools >terminal server manager

look on the right hand pane for active/dead RDP connections - you can delete them from here to free up connections

Hi nguyen_vantuananh,

If you are wanting to use remote desktop, you can remove terminal services as it will require lisensing in w2k3. remote desktopping will still work. you will have to right click on my comp go to properties and then to remote and tick the box for remote desktopping.
But the answer to you q remove terminal services.

Hope This helps

ow - do :)

As Microtech points out in 2003 you dont need to have the Terminal server role added to to remote administration of the server (unlike 2K)

I had the same problem and was able to fix it by going into gpedit.msc Computer Configuratin -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Terminal Services.

I changed the 'Allow users to connect remotely using Terminal Services' from 'Not configured' to 'Enabled'.
