Hi,

Is there a way to limit concurrent logins on server 2008 group policy or otherwise?

Thanks

i do not think it can be done in Group Policy but there is a third party product called user lock that has the functionality you desire

sure - as an admin, you can do this:
start > admin tools > remote desktop services > remote desktop session host config
in the middle there, double click "restrict each user to a single session", and put a checkmark by "restrict  each user to a single session"

settings will take effect for each user after they log off, so the next time they log in

oh if you don't mean per-user.... and you want per-server.... sure you can do that like this:

start > admin tools > remote desktop services > remote desktop session host config
right-click RDP-Tcp near the top, properties
go to the network adapter tab
put a dot by limit... and choose whatever you want the max allowed users to be
