Open Terminal Server Licensing.

The previous steps are not necessary if the Terminal Server CAL Installation Wizard is already started.
Call the Customer Support Center at the number that is displayed on the Obtain client license key pack page of the wizard, and give the representative your Terminal Server license server ID and the required information for the licensing program under which you purchased client licenses. The representative then processes your request to install CALs, and gives you a unique ID for the CAL.
In Type the client access license ID in the boxes below, type the CAL ID provided by the representative, and then click Next.
The client access licenses are installed on your Terminal Server license server.
Click Finish to complete the process.
The Terminal Server license server can now issue licenses to clients that connect to a terminal server.
You cannot install CALs until your Terminal Server license server is activated.
