server runing terminal services only allows ten connections

have a 2003 server running terminal services to access a small data base , it was part of a domain with a 2003 domain controller , we change the domain controller to a SBS 2011 server .
now the 2003 server running the terminal services will allow 10 users only to access it , it doesn't matter how many terminal services licences  0 or 20 still will allow 10 users , any one have any suggestions .

having a good look around the server I found a setting for the network for the server and it mentioned how many connections this was set to unlimited , I changed this to 20 maximum connection ,
yesterday we got all seventeen workstations connected.
I find this strange but it work.

previously the 11 connection would say no connection available .

Not heard of this happening before so I would start where you should always start - your event logs.
