Office 2013 KMS

I have a KMS server running in my environment. It's on a Server 2008R2.  Currently it's licensing Windows 7 and Office 2010.  I want to start using Office 2013. I attempted to install a KMS key from my volume licensing site and I also tried using the generic one I found on a MS site.  Both of them return an invalid license key message.

Upon further investigation, I discovered that with Office 2013, there is a license pack that has to be installed on the KMS server and then a KMS host key for 2013 activated.

So, my questions are:

1. Can I install this license pack on the same server that is currently running KSM for Windows 7 and Office 2010 WITHOUT screwing up the licensing of these other two products?

2. Where do I find a KMS HOST key for 2013?  Is it one of the ones listed in my MS volume licensing site?

There is a link to download the license pack.

Your server will be able to activate Windows 7, Office 2010 and Office 2013 without a problem. It will not screw up current activation setups.

You need to use your volume license Office 2013 KMS key on the server.
