Windows Server 2012 only allows 2 concurrent users for administration.  If you need more you would need to use the Remote Desktop Services role, which is an additional licence.  The setting you changed in Group policy relates to this.

If you need to install the Remote Desktop Services then have a look at this link , note that this will require the Remote Desktop Services licencing role to be installed or a Remote Desktop Services Licence server to be used as well.  Grace period for licences is 120 days so you have a bit of time to test it.
