Windows Server Standard 2008 won't change TS licensing mode

I have new Dell server running "Windows Server Standard" (no 2008 in the edition name), SP2, that I'm trying to make a Terminal Server.  I've added the TS and TS Licensing roles and installed 10 user cals.  When I open the Terminal Services Configuration app, it says the "Terminal Services licensing mode" is "Personal Terminal Server".  When I try to change that a "Per User" mode I get an error

"Unable to complete operation: 8007013D".  

I get this error regardless of whether I let it discover it's licensing server or explicitly it set it.  I've been able to find lots of references to this error on SBS 2008, but nothing for Server Standard.

Thanks for the help.

Are you sure you are using Standard and not SBS?

I've pretty sure; I've attached a screenshot of the system properties screen.  I don't see any reference to SBS on there.

personal terminal server: In general context, refers to a client SKU target machine that hosts remote desktop sessions. From a terminal service licensing perspective, the behavior of a personal terminal server is similar to that of a terminal server in remote administration mode. Thus any behavioral reference to a personal terminal server in this document essentially implies that the particular behavior is valid for a terminal server in remote administration mode as well. The term personal terminal server is therefore used to encompass all connections where either the end point is a client SKU operating system or is a terminal server running in remote administration mode.

You need to put the Terminal Server in Application Mode this is currently running in Remote Admin Mode

Thanks for the response but I'm a little confused.  How do I put the server in Application mode, if not by assigning it a different licensing scheme (i.e. the screenshot provided with the error)?

We were able to find a solution; apparently the WMI repository was corrupt.  We resolved this by running
