That's essentially an unanswerable question. There are an infinite number of things EJBs can't do: take a dog for a walk, appreciate beauty, etc.
EJB is simply a framework for reading, writing and cacheing data. It's part of Java 2 Enterprise Edition.
Are there any specific areas of functionality where you are unsure if EJB is appropriate?

I can tell you one thing right away - EJBs become messy with multithreaded apps.

From the programmer's and EJB Specification point of you I think you need to refer to the
24.1.2 Programming restrictions
Section which talks at detail about what an EJB must not do.

I think that inheritance is one of the most controversial features that EJBs haven't as we expect.
They can't live without an EJB Container, also.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
