Server 2012 Remote Desktop Services - Configured for 6 Licenses but still restricted to 2 connections

I have gone through the steps to activate the RDS Server and License Manager but I still get an error trying to add a 3rd remote desktop connection that I need to disconnect because too many users. Not sure where to begin to look.

The only time I've seen that is if you didn't install the session host role.  Every other config error I can think of generates a different error.  That error pretty specific to a non-session host using admin mode.

Gone through the steps is not a very detailed description of what you've done.  Can you be a bit more detailed because in every instance where people have initially set this up properly, that's not one of the problems they encounter.

Cliff, you were exactly correct, that was what was needed, thanks! I was able to connect more users. I was still getting license errors, though, and for that I followed an article I found enabling the License Server and the License Type using GPEDIT.MSC. I really find it hard to believe you need to edit Group Policy to enable a license server, but hey, it's working.
