Do the following...
- Login to the Server
- Open Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs
- Click Add/Remove Windows Components
- Scroll down and put a check mark in Terminal Server and Terminal Server Licensing
- Click Next and this will install the features
- Reboot the server

Once Server is rebooted
- Click Start, Administrative Tools
- Click Terminal Server Licensing
- Expand All Servers, Right click on your server and click Properties
- Automatic Connection,
- Once you have activated your server, right click on the server and select Install Licenses
- Follow the Install Licenses Installation Wizard

If you need a key generated you can contact Microsoft Terminal Service support to create you a License Key pack

If you activate this by method of Phone you will get the Microsoft phone number to help create the license key pack for you.

Hope this helps~!

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

If you have already "Activated" your Terminal Server" then you just need to right click on the server and click install license. From there you will then enter your license key.

If you are going to activate your server and install the Keys over the phone make sure that you have your "Authorization Number" and "License Enrollment Customer Number". Once you have provided MS with this information they will also need the Product ID which is on your server.

Once they have this information they will provide you with the License Key serial number to install on your server.
