The Licensing service must be started for you to open the Licensing console. The Licensing console is useful if you license your server on a per user basis versus a per server basis. You can manage your server and client licenses through this console.

Local Security Policy

Local Security Policy are the settings which control most of the security functionality on the server. You can change settings here which affect how users login, what functions certain classes of users can perform, and auditing policies.

Manage Your Server
