Issue



"No more connections can be made to this remote computer at this time because there are already as many connections as the computer can accept" occurs when a Backup Exec System Recovery (BESR) client attempts to backup to a network share residing on a Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition or Microsoft Windows XP Professional System

Error



No more connections can be made to this remote computer at this time because there are already as many connections as the computer can accept

Solution



Cause:

For Windows XP Professional, the maximum number of BESR Client System permitted to simultaneously connect to a share is ten. This limit includes all transports and resource sharing protocols combined, such as those used by other applications. For Windows XP Home Edition the number of clients is five (support to such shares is also questionable at this time).  However, the Administrative Tools use by a remote computer does not count towards this number.

Resolution:

Change the backup location to a Server Operating System Share, NAS Device, or backup to a local drive.
