    windows 8 kms server upgrading OS to windows 8.1

    ive got a windows 8 vm thats a kms server (highest os i had a kms key gor when the school bought ees) ive upgraded its kms to windows 8.1 so it should activate windows 8.1 pcs a while back. Will it still work if i upgrade its os to 8.1 or is that likely to break it?

    I have the KMS running on Server 2012 (Activates Win7/8/8.1 MSO 2k10 & Server 2012/R2), but when I upgraded it to 2012R2 it stopped activating anything less than 8.1, not sure if i missed something, but it definately didn't keep working out of the box.
