Direct Control on Red Hat Linux platforms
When tried to ssh to the machine, one of 3 scenarios happens:
1) Sometimes when trying to ssh with PUTTY, it will say “Account cannot be accessed at this time”
2) Sometimes it will just close the PUTTY session
3) Sometimes it will login just fine. (Generally, right after running adquery user -A <username> or an adflush on the console). However, after a successful logon, tried to login again right away, it will always fail with either #1 or #2 scenario.
It appears that the concurrent sshd connections has maxed out.
