In 2012, with a standard deployment, it is easy. Just add the new licensing server in Server Manager and remove the old one. Server Manager does the rest.

If you did something non-standard...well...then it depends on what you did so without those details, advice is a bit tough to give.

In server manager, when you click on the RDS role in the left pane, you'll get a "map" of your RDS topology. Click the green + circle for the licensing server and follow the wizard.

That's the right place, but that also tells me that you didn't configure your RDS environment in a standard way *at all.* (The RDS wizards configure the RDCB first thing.) So yeah, not sure I can account for all the possible variables in a non-standard deployment.
