Problem

Can't connect to a Windows 2003 Server via Remote Desktop. The error message claims that the maximum number of terminal sessions has been exceeded.

Solution

mstsc /console

This forces the Microsoft Terminal Services Client to connect to the system's console instead of to a Remote Desktop session (ie take over the console port). From there you can look at who's connected, and disconnect as appropriate.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
