Remote Desktop Services on a Windows Server 2008 Domain Controller

I have Remote Desktop Services and the Licensing Manager both installed on a 2008 Domain Controller. I know that it's not recommended by Microsoft, but the client only had one Server in the budget. I've purchased 7 Remote Desktop Services licenses, but the Server is only allowing 2 connections at one time. When a third user tries to sign in, it prompts them to disconnect one of the other users. How can I get this Server to recognize my licenses? I checked under the Licensing Manager, and they are installed and activated. I have this same setup working on another 2008 Server, but I can't find the difference in this configuration.

What licencing mode is the licencing server in?

If you have the licencing mode in "Per device" then even if you add more "Per user" CALs, the new Per user CALs will not get issued.

Also, is the licencing server a member of the AD Terminal Services License Server group?

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I ended up having to install the Remote Desktop Session Host Role Service to make it work. That's why I couldn't utilize the "Per User" CALS.
