I did , and it gave the same message.
terminal services service shows started.
If I restart it, would this cause a problem? bring the machine down or something? this is a production machine.

Is there anybody locally to the system that can log off the console session? Generally only two sessions can connect to a server without additional Terminal Server licencing.

I meant to restart the server which you would obviously have to do when convenient

Don't matter if the console is "open" on the actual console. you should be able to connect to the console at all times.. or use ilo in a HP server..

Is this a real terminal server, or are you using this server in administration mode (2 users and a console).

Are there error messages in the eventlog?

IN RDP you will get only two sessions to connect remotly. Go to physical server console and go to task manager by right clicking on task bar. Select users tab in task manager and disconnect or logoff one of the user.

when disconnecting a TS session, can this be done by going to Computer Managment console, then right-click/ select connect to the remote computer and go to sessions and close the session??
I did this, but I guess this is not for TS sessions. Correct?

No this is not for ts sessions, this is for RPC connections (shares)
Use the Terminal Services Manager.
There you can see who is connected and you have the options there to connect, disconnect and more
