Hello, I would like to 'prepare' our KMS to activate Windows Server 2019. I took a look at this page https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started-19/activation-19 and noticed that the Volume License for Windows Server 2019 doesn't activate Server 2008 R2 or windows 7 anymore. At the moment our KMS has the 2016 Volume License key and using 'slmgr /dlv all' I can see this :
Name: Windows(R), ServerStandard edition Description: Windows(R) Operating System, VOLUME_KMS_2012-R2_WIN10 channel This license is not in use. License Status: Unlicensed
Name: Windows(R), ServerStandard edition Description: Windows(R) Operating System, VOLUME_KMS_WS12_R2 channel This license is not in use. License Status: Unlicensed
The key before that was used was the 2012 R2 for Windows 10 I understand that this key is not used anymore as the 2016 one was ok for all the OSes supported by the 2012 R2 one. But now, what will happen when I register the 2019 one ? I want to be sure that 2008 servers and windows 7 machines are still activated.
Am I right to assume that the 2016 key will remain 'active' even after registering the 2019 one ?
