The "license server security group" policy setting allows you to specify the Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) servers that are permitted to contact the license server to obtain Remote Desktop Services client access licenses (RDS CALs). If the policy setting is enabled on the license server, the server will only respond to RDS CAL requests from RD Session Host servers whose computer accounts are members of the Terminal Server Computers local group on the license server.

The policy setting is located in the following node of the local group policy editor:

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\TS Licensing
