If you want to do this in the GUI, you'll need a lab with Active Directory configured. Then the GUI will be available in the 2012 Server Manager and the information is stored in AD.

Running RDS in a workgroup is not easy to do or easy to manage. I strongly discourage  trying. In that situation, you have to manually tell RDS the licensing mode and licensing server location through reg edits or local group policy (which still just does reg edits for you.)
