----------
To specify the Terminal Services licensing mode on a terminal server by using Terminal Services Configuration
On the terminal server, open Terminal Services Configuration. To open Terminal Services Configuration, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Terminal Services, and then click Terminal Services Configuration.

Under Licensing, double-click Terminal Services licensing mode.

Select either Per Device or Per User, depending on which is appropriate for your environment, and then click OK.

Hi

if that is disable then "Terminal Server" is not installed on the computer its running on Remote Desktop for administration mode, which will allow only 3 sessions.
