you can use Best Practice analyzer to check all the configuration is recommended or not. Its inbuilt tool in server 2008.

You can open BPA in the Server Manager console by opening the home page for a server role that supports BPA.
To open BPA in Server Manager
Open Server Manager. To open Server Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
In the tree pane, open Roles, and then select the role for which you want to open BPA.
In the details pane, open the Summary section, and then open the Best Practices Analyzer area.

Ran BPA, only thing it is complaining about is not enough licenses even though they have 25 & less than 20 users at any one time...

Without knowing all the details of your setup this more of an educated guess but I think you need to look at your users and whether you have the right license model for your terminal servers (not citrix)
You've bascially run out of licenses so you need to check whether you're using per user or per device licenses and change your setup accordingly to fit your needs. Have a read here:

Hope that helps.
