KMS Key Questions

Recommended Posts

Okay so I have read this somewhere and the way I interpret this i want to make sure is correct.


If I stand up a 2012R2 KMS Server and use the Windows Srv 2012R2 DataCtr/Std KMS for Windows 10 Key all Servers Standard/DataCtr/Enteprise and Windows Workstation Windows 10 Below will be activated by this KMS Server? All the KMS Keys at Microsoft VLSC with KMS are only for if you are setting up a machine with that OS and want it to be a KMS right?


Next Question if I use 2012R2 will 2016 activate or would it be best to stand up a 2016 KMS?


The way i understand this i would need to do the following:


Stand-up 2012R2 & Use this Key Srv 2012R2 DataCtr/Std KMS for Windows 10

Add Office Keys 2010/2013/2016


And this will cover my servers and desktops... is a correct assumption?
