Why do I get error of "Maximum number of connections to instance exceeded"?

Hi,

 

I get this error "

Service started with errors

Data_xxxxx.MapServer:
GIS-PROD2.BUCKNELL.EDU
Instance of service 'Data_xxxx.MapServer' started with errors. Maximum number of connections to instance exceeded
GIS-PROD.BUCKNELL.EDU
Instance of service 'Data_xxx.MapServer' has been successfully created.

" when I change the "Maximum number of instances per machine" via server manager.

 

I am not sure if it is because we hit the max connection to the sde? If yes, how do we calculate the connections to the sde? And why do I get the error on one machine -"GIS-PROD2" instead of failing on two of the machines?

 

Or this is something else?


Thanks
