Windows Server 2012 Remote Desktop Server and User Cals can not use after activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have enabled the Remote Desktop Server on our Windows Server 2012 Standard and activated the RDS Server and 9 RDS user CALs via phone.

    However, when there is more then 2 concurrent remote session login, there is a message on the new comer windows shows:

    "There are too many users signed in"

    Is there anything I didn't turn on to cause this problem? please advise, many thanks

    ** Update: originaly I didn't add the RDS Connection Broker service, is it related?

    Anyway, I was trying to add this role but failed either using the server manager GUI or powershell, follwing is the error I found after I execute the command to add this service, pleas help
