If I will connect with the third User on a Windows Server 2003 System, I get the Message "The connection was ended because of a network error..."

I know that Terminal Services in Administrative Mode can handle two simultanous RDP connection plus a third in console mode.

My Problem is that I can connect just two sessions. It makes no difference if I connect twice without /console or one with /console - always just two connections possible. I checked the Eventlog and the GPO and the Terminal Services MSC - All Settings are the same as the other houndreds of 2003 Servers we have. Only this one let us connect twice - all other act as espected: two "normal" connection plus one /con connection are possible.

OS: Windows Server 2003 EN / SP1 (32-Bit)
