Windows 10 licence when creating a virtual machine in Azure

When I create a Windows 10 virtual machine I get the following msg at the end:

  • I confirm I have an eligible Windows 10/11 license with multi-tenant hosting rights.*

I have a regular WINDOWS 10 license of my PC and a Office 365 subscription.

Is this enough or do I need anything else in order to be compliance with the Azure terms and services?

Thank very much :)

    Only if you have a windows 10 Enterprise E3/E5 per user license on your PC (or some others from https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/windows-desktop-multitenant-hosting-deployment#license-entitlement) . Otherwise you cannot use your local license to also install it on a VM.
