      Why would processing power do this? Wouldn’t there have to be a set number someplace (like licenses?) that is configured as the maximum number of sessions that can run at a time to make that message pop up? Is that number set because the VM doesn’t have enough processing power, which makes C the correct answer? This questions seems like it’s missing something.

    It says “installed on a small VM with only the recommended Hardware specifications”, which indicates, that the VM has not that much Processing power, so i would tend to C

      I hear ya, but if the “recommended hardware specs” are for 5 licenses, and they need 10, then I would think that B could be the answer…. I hope this one isn’t on my test…

    What system looks at the hardware it is running on to decide how many users to allow to log on? I have not seen that ever. For such an error to be displayed the system must know how many users are allowed, and this suggests a limited number of connections or of licenses.

    I think licenses is the best answer to this question. When you purchase some systems, you purchase them for X number of users.

    The system was installed on the recommended hardware, it should be able to run.

    It must be B not C in my mind. And none of this has anything to do with security.

    These questions stress me out. I think many of them have crap information specifically worded to mess with your head. If the VM was installed with the minimum requirements, I would jump on it. If anything was said about licenses in the question, the answer would be a given. What the hell is a “small” VM? Maybe there is a firewall between them with a VPN limited to a specific number of concurrent sessions, and some custom system message about when that number is exceeded. What OS is the VM running anyway? Maybe this is a common Linux error and I just don’t know enough about Linux. And what does that have to do with security.

    I guess the best answer to the information given is processing power, but it feels like a trap to me. Licensing was my gut response.

    I think the answer is B. the software is out of licenses.
    because if the VM doesn’t have enough CPU power it will just become slow and the users won’t be able to access the app without throwing any error.

    I had to register just to answer this question. It seems like every site has this question wrong.

    So possibilities

    A. Network resources have been exceeded.
    If network resources been exceed fine it’s possible, but it would be similar to a DDOS attack. The results would be a time out on the web browser, not a 404.

    C. The VM does not have enough processing power.
    Lol. If VM did not have enough processing power then the same results. It would be really slow to get the web page or a time out.

    D. The firewall is misconfigured.
    The browser would show, unreachable or time out.

    B. The software is out of licenses.
    ** The correct answer **

    The web server is replying with some like

    Access denied: too many concurrent sessions.

    or something like that. That means it replied, so it’s a software error. Apparently the software has a limited number of licenses – common issue with paid software installed on a web server.
