Windows Server 2012 KMS HOST and Windows 7 Clients

Hi,

One of our KMS server Hosts is running Windows 2012. Do I need to do anything to make sure it activates Windows 7 Clients?

Also, according to our Microsoft agreement, we have Windows 7 Enterprise KMS keys - do we really need these and where, if server 2008R2 KMS activates them with the Server 2008R2 keys?

Thanks!

Thanks, that part is clear. I just want to make sure that when introducing a Server 2012 KMS host it will be able to activate Windows 7 Clients with the server 2012 KMS key.
