It seems our remote desktop license server has lost it's licensing and is asking to reenter the license. Is there a way to fix this corruption or extract our licenses? It is a 2012 server and I am having to activate the server wizard again.

Take a look here:

1. Click on Start button and in the search box type regedit
2. In Regedit, navigate to the following key:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing

Did you not record your licenses somewhere or received them via email?

If you have the licenses there with you then you can look at rebuilding your RD licensing database. This link is for 2008 R2 but it will still work for 2012/2012R2: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff817600(v=ws.10).aspx
