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.
