KMS Server 2008 R2 and License for Windows Server 2012
Posted on 2013-11-08
I have a question about KMS Server. I have a one Windows Server 2008 R2 with role of KMS Server.
In this server, I put the necesary licenses for clients/server Windows 7, Windows 2008 & R2 they exist in my domain enviroment.
Now, I need to put Windows Server 2012 license. I researched on the internet that I need to apply a hotfix for Windows to update the KMS server, so that it can accept a Windows Server 2012 license.
I installed the Hotfix and then proceeded to apply the license of Windows 2012 within KMS Server, but when I list the licenses applied within the KMS server, the old Windows 2008 R2 license disappears and is no longer visible. I think that the new license for Windows 2012 replace the older of 2008 R2.
Is this possible?, this is the normal procedure? Does the new Windows 2012 license will which activate my others Windows 2008 & 2008 R2?
What it's the limit of activations that one KMS Server can supply in a domain enviroment? or not exist any limit for this?
Thanks a lot!
