Error with RDS license after migrating to a new server with Windows Server 2022 OS

After migrating the 2022 RDS license from one server to another, I am getting the following error:

"The Remote Desktop Session Host server is in Per User licensing mode and No Redirector Mode, but license server "Servername" does not have any installed licenses with the following attributes:

Product version: Windows Server 2022

Licensing mode: Per User

License type: RDS CALs"

What could be causing this error, and how can I resolve it?

    Have you changed your group policy which specifies your license server? After you migrate your license server to a new one, you can edit your GPO to achieve license CAL from the new server.

    You can follow the step:

    a. Create a GPO and link to the desired containers

    b. Navigate to Computer Configuration - Policies - Administrative Templates - Windows Components - Remote Desktop Services - Remote Desktop Session Host - Licensing

    c. Double click Use the specified Remote Desktop license servers, set to Enabled and enter the names of the license servers then click OK

    d. Double click Set the Remote Desktop licensing mode. Click Enabled and set the licensing mode then click OK

    e. Close the GPO
