The terminal server has exceeded maximum number of allowed connection, mstsc

Problem

The user is attempting to log on to a Terminal Server in Remote Administration mode, but the server has reached its connection limit. Terminal Servers in Remote Administration mode allow a maximum of 2 concurrent sessions, active or disconnected

  1. Open Command Prompt.
  2. Type: “mstsc /admin”.
  3. Remote Desktop Connection will start. Type the computer name or IP address of the computer you want to connect to in the Computer box.
  4. Configure any other desired options, and then click Connect.

Example

mstsc /v:IP_SERVER /admin /f
