Connection Limit Exceeded SBS2003
Posted on 2013-01-28
Small Biz Server 2003 SP2 ::: Exchange stopped working over weekend. Users getting drive mapping errors, too. Cannot connect because there are already as many connections as the computer can accept. ??? This is a server. Everyone has a cal. It has worked for years and now all of a sudden no connection? The admins can always connect.
I checked the limit. It was set to Max Allowed so I set it to 100 just in case the max allowed was too small - not sure why, it was never too small. I eliminated several (>20) unused accounts that were disabled. These are mapped connections, not RDPs. After restart, some could use their Y:\Departments folder and could get their email now but others could not.
NOTE ::: I RDP'd to a user's machine. My resources were available from their "Computer". I selected the "Departments" folder on my machine from theirs and I was able to see it. I also tried to open the server share from inside Word but got the same message.
