Tweak to create 50+ VNC/Gnome sessions (dubs/systemctl limits)

I am trying to create 50 VNC display session on a CentOS 7.6 machine. I created a local user. Once logged in, I could create only 9 sessions.

After this VNC Server starts, immediately errors out with

dmesg has something like below…

I suspect this is to do with system limits for user or dbus limits. I am unable to proceed though. Please suggest what could be changed to create tens of VNC displays.
