Open server manager - Tools - Terminal Services - Remote Desktop License Manager. Then Expand All Servers and right click on your server.
Then choose Install License.
Follow the wizard.

Verify that the Terminal Server Licensing service is running on the license server.

2012 does not auto-discover licensing servers as previous versions did. You need to set the licenses server for the deploymemt, either via server manager (recommended) or by group policy. Given that error seems to be looking for a server though, does then name match? Have you verified proper DNS lookups are succeeding and the licensing server is listening on the appropriate IP address?

Did you edit the screenshot of the RDP License Diagnoser where it says 'licenseserver.yourdomain.com'?

If not, that's your problem.

Ok, do you understand why the diagnoser is failing, why 'licenseserver.yourdomain.com' might be a problem?

Open Server Manager > Go to the RDS Section > Overview > Click on 'Tasks' in the Deployment Overview section and choose 'Edit Deployment Properties' > RD Licensing > Specify the license type based on the CALs you purchased (Per Device / User) > Enter the FQDN of your License Server (sql.rta.local) and click 'Add'.

If another License Server is already specified, you need to remove that as well.

Then reboot the Server and test it again.  I can't say that's a definite solution but it will get you on your way, keep us updated :)
