Server 2008

Whenever we connect a new 2008 server (Enterprise Edition) to our domain some of our users are kicked off of their remote sessions.  We have tried numerous times and still, as soon as we plug in the network cable some of our TS/Citrix clients are kicked off.

Has anyone else had this issue?  If so, need help.  We are trying to add a new Citrix machine but have not installed Citrix yet.  We initially set it up as a bare bone 2008 server with no TS features and it kicked them off.  We added IIS and TS with same results.  It only affects one of the servers in the network and only a few users, not all users.

Is that TS or RDS server successfully contacting the License Server?

We do not have TS or RDS installed at this point.  It does it with or without TS or RDS installed.  With absolutely no "Server Roles" it kicks them off.  Within about 30 seconds of plugging in the network cable we get a call and they now ask if we connected the server again because they got "kicked out".

And, additional information is:  There is no event recorded in either servers event log.

By default without any CALs, the server can support 2 remote sessions or 1 console session + 1 remote session.

They are not logging into this server.  This server is kicking them out of a totally different server.  This server has not been put in production yet.  We can't even get it on the network because it shuts some clients out as soon as we try to connect it.
Are they both on the same IP address?

Could they both have the same MAC address ?  Granted this would have had to have been manually configured on a NIC that supported setting a MAC address, but still worth checking.

MAC address different.  IP address not the same as any other.
