Hello Experts, I have a new Windows Server 2016 configured as a domain controller.  I was adding workstations and was stopped on number 11 with "Your computer could not be joined to the domain.  You have exceeded the maximum number of computer accounts you are allowed to create in this domain."  My boss purchased 6 Server 2016 10 user CAL packs but I have no idea where to put them.  Any help would be great.
