It is also possible that network problems are preventing your connection. Please try your connection again later. If the problem continues to occur, contact your administrator.
Cause:  The remote computer might not be set up to accept remote connections.

Solution:  Try connecting to the remote computer at a later time. If you receive the same message, contact the server administrator.

Cause:  The remote computer might already have the maximum number of remote connections it is set up to accept.

Solution:  Try connecting to the remote computer at a later time. If you receive the same message, contact the server administrator.

Cause:  Network problems might be preventing the connection.

Solution:  Try connecting to the remote computer at a later time. If you receive the same message, contact the server administrator.

Hi,

Make sure you have administrator access to that server.

Orelse add your name to remote desktop users group in the server.

Hello,

1. Check that client is resolving server's name by pinging it.
2. Ensure that "Enable Remote Desktop on this computer" is checked on Remote tab under system properties.

make sure that you enabled the remote desktop on the server by right click on my computer and click on properties click on remote tape and check the check-box allow user to remote desktop to this computer

make sure also that you are member of the remote desktop user on the server and if you wan to administrate the server you should be also member of administrators group

i hope it will help

Another thing looks like maybe was not covered is if you have only administrative access for RDP to that machine there are only 2 connections allowed, if those connections are used and the person did not log out those connections will still be in use. You need to log them out to gain a new connection. If you are remoting from a Windows  machine you might gain a third RDP connection by using the mstsc /Admin switch you might also try mstsc /console which mimics that you are logging in from the console.
