Hi Experts,

I'm running SBS 2008 environment and now one of my standard user has exceeded his limit of adding workstation to the domain.

I have found some URL of increasing the limit, but I didn't found the exact resolution for SBS 2008 or Windows 2008.

Please help and thanks a lot !

    Hello Shakthi777,

    the user limit for SBS 2008 will stay at 75 users, you can't do anything about that, unless upgrading to essential business server 2008

    I think the maximum of computer accounts an authenticated user can add to the domain is still remaining at 10 in SBS? If you want to increase that limit the below links should help you.

    However, if userA has used up his limit you can always get userB to do the same thing as userB has 10 limit too. Domain Admin don't have this limit.

    Furthermore, you can only have 75 users in SBS.
