Firstly can you confirm that the licenses you have purchased are Windows Server 2012 Remote Desktop Services (RDS) CALs? These CALs are not the same as regular server CALs.

Once you have confirmed you have purchased the proper CALs then follow the steps in this article to set up a Remote Desktop Session Host in a Workgroup: http://ryanmangansitblog.com/2013/10/30/deploying-a-rdsh-server-in-a-workgroup-rds-2012-r2/

RDS Device CALs are only supported in a workgroup environment as far as I know, so you'll need to contact your reseller and see if they can swap your User CALs to Device CALs.

Once you configure your server as a RD Session Host you'll have 120 days to get your licensing in order, otherwise your users may be prevented from logging in. See the RDS Host and RDS licensing servers are in the same workgroup section in this Microsoft KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2473823 (I know it says 2008 R2 but it also applies to 2012 R2)

Do you have documentation for this?  I have never seen this before.

VB ITSSpecialist ConsultantCommented:
Sorry Larry, poor wording on my behalf there.

What I meant to say is that RDS Device CALs are only supported when the RD Session Host is in a workgroup environment - you cannot use RDS User CALs.

Documentation can be found in the article I linked earlier: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2473823

@mwauki: ignore that section for now, the certificate warning is benign and shouldn't prevent your users from logging into your 2012 R2 Remote Desktop Server.
