Terminal Server (RDS) Win2008 - licensing issue

Hi experts:

I have a client who bought a win2008 server with 20cals for remote desktops service (term services).  I enabled the terminal services role on the server and installed this license pack.  See the graphics below.  I see where I have installed the lcienses but when I use the server I get the message that the license will expire.
Can someone explain what I have done wrong or how to turn off the message.

As simpsol states calling the the best way to activate the server, the methods are described here:

In the past if you used any method other than phone activation you would have to re activate after two years or somrthing like that.

You need to call MS and activate the license

I have a similar problem with a custumer. The problem was that the windows 2008 server has the terminal server licenses, but the windows was not activated. I don't know if this could help.
