    Hello @Rohan choudhary ,

    1.Did you reboot the server or update group policy after disabling limits? Is there any error message if connecting more than 10 sessions?

    2.There should be no hard limit if the hardware is not an issue. Could you please provide the hardware information of the session host servers, like CPU, memory, disk capacity, C drive capacity, internal and external network bandwidth and graphics card? Have you used roaming profile or UPD?

    3.Did you activate the licensing server and install per-user CALs on the licensing server?
