Thank you for posting in Windows Server Forum.
From your description it seems that you have purchased CAL for your client to get access. Whether you have purchase simple server CAL or RDS CAL (Per user or Per Device).
If you have purchase RDS CAL then you need to have install RDS License role service and then first need to activate the RD License server. After activating we can configure the RDS CAL on RD License server and for this you might need to call the MS clearing
house, explain them your situation and they will help you to activate and configure everything. After that we also need to point our RD License server to RDSH server.
For more information, you can refer below article.
