and you will need this hotfix on your KMS servers:

This is official information as of 7/15/2015

You'll also need your organization's CSVLK to activate and setup the KMS Host. CSVLKs for Build 10240 will be made available to organizations with VL rights soon.

KMS host keys


A KMS host needs a key that activates, or authenticates, the KMS host with Microsoft. This key is usually referred to as the KMS host key, but it is formally known as a Microsoft Customer Support Volume License Key (CSVLK). Most documentation and Internet references earlier than Windows 8.1 use the term KMS key, but CSVLK is becoming more common in current documentation and management tools.

A KMS host running Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, or Windows Server 2008 R2 can activate both Windows Server and Windows client operating systems. A KMS host key is also needed to create the activation objects in AD DS, as described later in this guide. You will need a KMS host key for any KMS that you want to set up and if you are going to use Active Directory-based activation.
