Remote Desktop Server 2012 says no license server available

Posted on 2013-12-11

I have just installed a new domain all running Server 2012.
I have a server configured with the Remote Desktop Services role.
I have bought - and installed, 10 User Cals.

Problem is, that every time a user logs in to the remote server, it claims, that there is no license server installed and that it will be running for 40 days before it stops.

If I start RD LICENSING MANAGER everything looks fine to me.
I see a green mark for SERVER-REMOTE which is the computername, the status is ACTIVATED, and if I click SERVER-REMOTE I see 10 licenses available for Windows Server 2012.

HOWEVER!!!
If I start RD LICENSING DIAGNOSER it gives me two critical warnings:

"SERVER-REMOTE THE LICENSING MODE FOR THE REMOTE DESKTOP SESSION HOST SERVER IS NOT CONFIGURED"

...and..

"SERVER-REMOTE THE REMOTE DESKTOP SESSION JOST SERVER IS WITHIN ITS GRACE PERIOD, BUT THE RD SESSION HOST SERVER HAS NOT BEEN CONFIGURED WITH ANY LICENSE SERVERS"

My problem is, that it does not seem like the REMOTE DESKTOP SESSION HOST CONFIGURATION application is installed on this server??

I can confirm, that if I browse SERVER MANAGER - Roles - Remote desktop services everything seems to be marked and installed??
Can anyone point me in the right direction with this?
