Upon entering the web interface of a sun server and when trying to login the following message appears:

Too many users are logged in

Can anyone advise me on what this means, or how to fix it?

Maybe a bit obvious, but: 1) How many users are allowed to log in at the same time? 2) How many are logged in. 3) Is the answer to 2 less then the answer to 1? – Hennes Dec 19 '12 at 8:57
You might want to reset the Management Processor. – Dmitri Chubarov Dec 19 '12 at 11:38
You can probably reset the ILOM form its command line interface. If someone does have an open session, see who's logged-on. – ewwhite Dec 19 '12 at 14:09

You should probably have a read of this document which but in brief connect to the service processor cli

ssh ip_of_sp
-> show /SP/sessions

should tell you who is connected so you my be able to track someone down and get them to log out. Failing that

-> reset /SP

Will restart the service processor and amongst other things lo everyone out.
