Remote Desktop services licensing problem in win2k12R2

I just installed remote desktop services in windows server 2012 R2 and now I'm getting this pop error:

"remote desktop licensing mode is not configured, remote desktop services wills top working in 115 days. On the RD connection broker server, use server manager to specify the remote desktop licensing mode and the license server."

I purchased 10 licenses for remote desktop services, not sure exactly how to install them.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated...

By default RD session host will work in trial mode for 120 days from the date of installing RDS role.Post that you won't be able to connect to RD Session host servers
You need to install RD licensing role on any 2012 R2 member server \ RD broker server and need to activate it online, during activation use account that is member of domain admins and enterprise admins account
Then you need to add purchased license on RD license server
Becasuse your RD Session host servers required RDS CALs (licenses) in order to connect thru RDP protocol
