Question:

In Windows Server 2003 terminal server, how do you automatically log off disconnected sessions? I'm getting the following error:

"The terminal server has exceeded the maximum number of allowed connections. The system can not log you on. The system has reached its licensed logon limit. Please try again later."


Answer:

On your terminal server, adjust the Set time limit for disconnected session setting. In Group Policy Object Editor (Start | Run | gpedit.msc), drill-down to the setting: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Terminal Services > Sessions. You'll see 5 settings you can adjust.


In Group Policy Object Editor, there are actually two locations with the Set time limit for disconnected session setting (Computer Configuration and User Configuration). If both are set, the Computer Configuration setting overrides the User Configuration setting so you only really need to set the Computer Configuration settings.

Here is a screen shot. Notice the Note: in the screenshot says: "This setting does not apply to console sessions...appears in both Computer Configuration and User Configuration. If both...Computer Configuration setting overrides."

 

Just for comleteness, here is a screenshot of the same setting in User Configuration:
