I did it twice and the 2nd time the installation of the KMS key was successful.  I  see the _VLMCs entry in the dns server and the KMS vent log has  processed 3 requests so far. The license status is unlicensed, is that because the count has not yet reached 5?

That's correct.  You need at least 5 clients to reach out to request activation.  Once the 5th one is activated, they are all activated.
