How to fix the error “The terminal server has exceeded the maximum number of allowed connections”

If you receive the following message it means you have maxed out the active terminal server connections to the server.

The terminal server has exceeded the maximum number of allowed connections

To get around this, open a Command Prompt and type:

mstsc /v:00.00.00.00 /admin
or
mstsc /v:00.00.00.00 /console

Replace “00.00.00.00” with your server’s IP Address.
