How can I get Quickbooks Enterprise Version 9.0 (2010) to work properly?

Good Day,

I have a new Physical Server running Server 2008 Standard R2.  It also runs Hyper V, where I have a DC Virtual Machine and TS Virtual machine, both also running Server 2008 Standard R2.
Users can log in no problem to the DC.

I converted my old quickbooks data file to the new Enterprise Edition.

I installed the Server part of the Quickbooks Enterprise on the DC, and that's where the data file is.  The Terminal Server has the client software on it only.  The problem is, it dosent matter if the user is remote or local, the Enterprise software will not allow more than one person at a time to access the new database.  It will error out when a second person tries to access it.

All of the clients run Windows 7 Business.
I updated Quickbooks (server and clients)to the latest versions.
I have shut off all Firewalls on the Host Server and the two Virtual Servers.
The AV software does not have a firewall component.
It makes no difference if "Enable Multi User Mode" is selected when opening the  file over the network.
I have escalated to Quickbooks Tech Support, but they can't figure it out.

If anyone can lend a hand, it would be appreicated!
