Q: How can I change the number of concurrent users who can perform remote operations using WS-Management on a computer?

A: Typically, a computer allows five concurrent users who can perform remote operations using Web Services for Management (WS-Management). This includes users running remote Windows PowerShell.

To change the number of users to any number between 1 and 100, use the command below:

Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Shell\MaxConcurrentUsers 25
 where 25 is the user number. To check the current value, use this command:
 Get-Item WSMan:\localhost\Shell\MaxConcurrentUsers
