Windows KMS Server Client Count With Mixed OS?
We use KMS for a large amount of computers. It works really well. I am considering using Windows 8 on some 40" Tocuhscreens. The minimum client count for KMS activations is 30 clients. Now is that 30 Windows 7 clients and 30 Windows 8 clients or can it be a combination of 2 different os? Basically can i add the Windows 8 KMS key to my existing server and use the Windows 7 clients to count towards the 30 client limit? There will only be a small amount of Windows 8 machines.

It should be 30 client PCs. However, you'd need a 2012 server to handle the KMS I believe?

I believe it's 25 of each os.
So at the moment a kms server might show 50 activations that would be 25 vista and 25 win7

@localzuk you can apply a patch so 2008 R2 will do it.
EDIT: beaten by 2 others

Plus it is 25 clients not 30.
