I have a client with an SBS 2003 domain controller (5 user license) and a server 2008 R2 domain member with 10 cals and 10 rdp cals.
The server 2003 is old and is only used for domain controller, one app and document storage so there is never more than 5 users on it. The server 2008R2 is used for another app which will only work thru RDP to it. When ever they try to connect to the server 2008 RDP, the first 5 connect fine but from 6 they get a message "cannot connect to remote computer".
Examining the licensing on 2008 all appears to be correct and shows 10 RDP cals installed.
I have thought of taking the server 2008 off the domain and making it a workgroup system as it is possible that the SBS 2003 licensing (5 users ) is screwing up the connections.
Can any one offer any other solutions or confirm that my proposed solution would work?
