You need to install the RD Licensing Role, after this is installed there is a RD Licnesing option under Administrative Tools - Remote Desktop Services.

When you choose for activate server there will start a wizard you have to follow to configure the licensing server and add licenses to it.

Some configuration is documented here:

Then you need to enter your Autorisation and licensing numbers during the wizard. You can find those when log on to your Open / Volume license page
