Hello
I am trying to configure a KMS Server Installation on Server 2016 Data center.
Server is an AWS Image
Goal Configure KMS  Licensing for Windows 10 Clients
I received a KMS key based off of a Windows 10 Volume License Key

Upon installing the KMS license Microsoft provided, I receive this message attached.     I believe I need to receive a Server 2016 KMS license Key to license down level clients.  Is this correct per URL below?

If I use slmgr /ipk <xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx>   entering the Widnows 10 KMS key, I receive the error in KMS-Error

you need a windows client OS if you only have a windows 10 VL KMS Key
You are quite correct if installing the KMS key on a Server product you also need the Server VL KMS key
