Install RDS CALS but server still complains no licensing server?


Ive installed 15 users cals on my Windows 2008 terminal server which provides remote applications for my users. When I log onto the box has domain admins, I still see a balloon in the corner stating the following

The Remote Desktop Session Host server is within its grace period, but the RD Session Host server has not been configured with any license server. Click here to launch the RD Session Host Server configuration tool to specify a license server.

How to I setup the license server on the same server Ive installed the RDS CALS on?
