Have you set up an internal licencing server?

Try Administrative Tools > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Licencing Manager

If you can't see it, you'll need to install it.  I have mine on a DC and set Terminal Servers to query this DC.

Hope that helps.

An update is available that enables the Terminal Services license servers that are running Windows Server 2008 to be able to use the CALs for the Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services

As mentioned earlier read this thread to know about the RDS CALs in the Windows 2008 R2

Good Luck..!!
