Windows Server 2019 Datacenter and Windows 10 VMs

Hello,

We have a virtual environment covered by Windows Server 2019 Datacenter licenses and I wondering if it's possible to spawn Windows 10 Professional / Enterprise VMs within this license right to spawn unlimited number of VMs ? Or only Windows Server VMs are covered by this license?

Windows 10: A Microsoft operating system that runs on personal computers and tablets.Setup: The procedures involved in preparing a software program or application to operate within a computer or mobile device.

    Hi,

    Only Windows Server VMs are covered by this license, for Windows 10 client VMs you'll need a separate license.

    Best regards,
    Leon
