Error after installing a new terminal services server

I just finished installing a new terminal services server. When I open up Terminal Server Licensing the following message appears: "No Terminal Server license server is available to the current domain or workgroup. To connect to another license server, click Action, Click Connect and then type in the server name."

When I installed the terminal server licensing I selected Enterprise, not Domain/Workgroup. I suspect that was my wrongdoing as the terminal server is part of a domain. The funny thing is that if I type a UNC path to a share on the server I can't access that either. I get the following message: "There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request".

What do I need to do to go about solving this problem?

Enterprise gives it publishes in the site of the AD forest, so nothing wrong with that.
Additional to installing the TSLS, you also nead to install TS-CALs on the TSLS.

For the "no logon servers" error, check the DNS client configuration on the server (ipconfig/all). It shall only use internal DNS servers aware of AD DNS zone.

File and Printer sharing must be bound to the network card. Is that the case?
It is all explained here:

"Verify that File and Printer Sharing is Bound to the Network Adapter and that the Internal Network Adapter is at the Top of the Binding Order
To verify that File and Printer Sharing is bound to the internal network adapter and that the internal network adapter is at the top of the binding order
1.Open Network and Dial-up Connections. To open Network and Dial-up Connections, click Start, point to Settings, and then click Network and Dial-up Connections.

2.Click the connection that you want to verify, and on the Advancedmenu, click Advanced Settings.

3.On the Adapters and Bindings tab, in Bindings for AdapterName, verify that the File and Printer Sharing check box is selected. If the check box is not selected, select it.

To modify the protocol bindings order, you must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group.

4.Also in Bindings for AdapterName, verify that the internal adapter is at the top of the list. If it is not at the top of the list, click the up and down arrows to move the internal adapter to the top of the list."
