You should see the report within the RD Licensing Manager, under All Servers, <your server>, Reports.
From there you can right-click and save the report as CSV.

For info, on my RD Licensing servers it seems a bit buggy - the report is created but doesn't show under Reports unless I create it by right-clicking the server name, going to Create Report - CAL Usage. The display then changes to the Reports pane and there's a report with a date of Unknown showing. If I refresh the reports view it disappears...

Now I see the 'Reports' option listed...I logged on to the system with another admin account and was able to see this option.  Buggy, like you said.  

I do have another question with regards to licensing and connected sessions.  Does each connected session take up a 'license'?  For example, a user may show 2 sessions - one Disconnected and the other session active.  Does this constitute usage of 2 RDS licenses?  I have the licensing set up 'Per user'.  

Thank you,

Glad you found the reports, and glad it's not just me that it's buggy for :-)

To be honest, I think you really need to ask your new question as a new question! If only because a) its a bit cheeky trying to get 2 for 1, and b) I'm not 100% sure of the answer. I think if it is the same user then the CAL use would only equate to 1, it being called "per user" and not "per simultaneous connection". If you post a new question then probably some other experts will look in and provide a definitive answer.
