I have an existing Server 2008 with KMS for Office 2010.  I recently purchased a few copies of Office 2013 and decided to setup a 2012 KMS Server.  I went through the wizard and added the Office 2013 KMS key and activated it.  How do I move the Office 2010 to this new host and decommission the old?

How do I add the 2010 key to Server 2012.  The server asks if I want to uninstall the old...I assume that is referring to the Office 2013 key.

Did you remove the Key from the 2008 Server?

Ok, I followed the link and removed the key from the old and ran it on the new host.  The new host already had KMS running with the Office 2013 product key.  So now I assume both the 2010 and 2013 key are on the same host?? (which is what I want).
