We have a member server that we are trying to setup to allow 4 remote desktop sessions at the same time. When the 3rd connection tries to connect we get "select user to disconnect so that you may login". When we go to the member server remote desktop server host configuration and rigth click on the connection: RDP-TCP,network adapter, the limit number of connections is gray out. Is it possible to setup this server to increase the # of connection to 4? if so how?
