Terminal Services

Terminal Services suddenly is allowing only one person at a time to remote in.  Up until last Thursday, it worked fine, now when someone is logged in, the next person trying to logon receives this message "Only the current user or an administrator can log on to this computer".   The license server is installed, all users are members of Remote Desktop Users.  It worked fine until sometime last Thursday.  Rebooting it does not help.

The server has been running for about 2 years.  I did reactivate the terminal services license server without a problem.  (The activation has expired.) I can successfully connect this box to the licensing server without a problem.

Are there any messages in the event log that come up when the attempt fails?

The event log (Security) shows the user attempting to log in and then it shows that the user is logged in.  However, from the user side of things, they will get the message that "Soandso is logged on. Only the current user or an administrator can log on to this computer".

Is this server in a domain?  Could there be anything with Active Directory that could be getting in the way?  Sound unlikely, but it doesn't hurt to ask.. right?

The server isn't in a domain.  There are two other servers in the workgroup.  One has Terminal Services running without any problem.  All of the servers have been around for awhile.
