Dell Microsoft Windows Server Standard 2016 16 cores 2VMs RO

Hello everyone i hope u are doing well Smiley Happy

We bought Dell Microsoft Windows Server Standard 2016 16 cores 2VMs ROK for our customer.
Install Windows Server 2016 on host and hyper-v role.
Create virtual machine with Windows Server 2008 r2 STD

 

The question is how to activate OS on the VM when we have license on host "Dell Microsoft Windows Server Standard 2016 16 cores 2VMs ROK"It is possible at all ?

I'm not familiar with particular limitations or requirements of ROK, but if you were not provided with downgrade keys with your Server OS purchase, then you must provide the key for activation. Don't mistake the KEY with the LICENSE - they are not the same thing. The key is used for activation, but the system is LICENSED as a downgrade by virtue of the Server 2016 license.
