We're getting the message below, and after 12 users, the max is reached and no new connections are being allowed.
I'm assuming when this was setup, it was done on a per server basis with the default settings (5 licenses, with a max of 12).
Question: can I change it to per user and have the windows XP use their own license as the CAL's? If so, how do I go about doing that. I tried goign into Licensing, but dont get any option to change from server to user.
Not sure how the previous IT admin set it up either---it gets worse--not sure if anyone remembers the paper trail as the prevous IT admin might have failed to note it down or stress its importance.

License usage for product Windows Server is nearing the maximum number of per server licenses purchased. Consult Licensing from the Administrative Tools folder for more information.
