Windows 2000 Server ''no more connections can be made'' when browsing network

Last Modified: 2013-12-05

I am logged in to a workstation as a domain admin.  I want to browse the windows network tree, but when I try to expand the domain tree, I am receiving the 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".

We have purchased 20 per seat CALs for our Windows 2000 Server, I have just updated the licencing config on the server.  Do I need to restart the server before this takes effect?  Or does this have nothing to do with the error message?

The solution is probably very embarrassingly obvious but any help would be appreciated.  Thanks
