    Firstly, you may need clear the ransomware and make sure your server is under protection.

    For the error message "There are too many users logged in (force disconnect screen)"

    As far as I know,  a maximum of two administrators may be logged on at any one time, either two logged on remotely, or one local and one remote administrator. This assumes, however, that different accounts are being used to log on. In other words, the same user may not log on locally and remotely simultaneously.

     If you need more connections, you must install Remote Desktop Session Host role and purchase Terminal Services Client Access licensing.

    Best Regards,

    Mary
