SBS 2011 RDS Per User mode accepts only 2 users at a time..

I just setup a server with SBS 2011 Standard and everything is running great except RDS.  I have RDS setup in a Per User mode with 100 Per User licenses installed and activated.  Yet when I go to connect remotely I get an error on the 2nd connection that says "There are too many users logged in".  I've reinstalled RDS and the entire OS at one point and I've also changed multiple GPO's.  I'm at a loss! Any help is greatly appreciated!

couple of things.

Did you buy new user licenses or did you try to use old licenses from SBS 2003 or SBS 2008.

In RDS management: Does it know who the license server is?

RDS does not run on SBS.

I tried using licenses from SBS 2008. And yes, the license server is specified.

dsvoda is right. I don't know what I was thinking. You will have to have a second or Virtual server to do what you want.

I'm a fool.  I didn't even think about that, I looked at all my other term servers and none of them are SBS.  I don't know what I was trying to do either.  Thanks for the help!
