There are no Remote Desktop License Servers available to provide a license
Its windows server 2012 and you are trying RDP to it but getting kicked out with error "there are no Remote Desktop License Servers available to provide a license .. "

First please ensure that you have configured your terminal service fine. Open gpedit.exe and browse to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Remote Desktop Services -> Remote Desktop Session Host -> Licensing
You will see three keys there but your focus is only "Set the Remote Desktop licensing mode". Enable this and set License mode Per User but you can change to Per Device if your CALs are like that.
Some people will like to define terminal server name/IP by enabling "Use the specified RD license servers" Though this may not be a mandatory option but you can do if it is required.
Force removing of grace period key from if you had Trial RDS enabled and are expired. Removing that registry key is not as simple like cleaning other registry keys. Here is How to force cleanup grace period registry key .

Verify that RDS licensing server is configured fine. Load Server Manager and goto RD services/Overview / Deployment properties. Click on RD Licensing and use Per user or Per Device as per purchased CALs.
Finally from Administrative Tools open Terminal server License manager and add your CALS and install.

You shall be good to go. Please comment if you have any questions or suggestions.
