I am working on a Windows 2003 SBS domain and have started to encounter issues with too many client connections. We only have the standard 5 CALS instaleed and so understand that we need to purchase more CALs but wanted to understand what constitutes a client connection.
I have reviewed the Sessions in Computer Management on the server and can see the users that are logged on but there are also sessions with the computer name appended with a $ for the same computers that the users are logged on to. What are these connections? and are they included in the count of permitted connections?
