Windows 11 ISO and key not on VLSC

I am trying to download the ISO for Windows 11 from VLSC but it is not in the list of products.
I just got access to VLSC today and I'm not familiar with the normal wait time to get ISOs up there.
To my knowledge we have a current EA with MSFT for O365 E5/F3 licenses. We also have SA as we were receiving SATv credits up until this year and I'm fairly confident we included that in our EA.
I am unsure what other requirements or steps need to be completed to see W11 in the list or if it's just a patience thing.
Any tips would be welcome.

You can download the Home/Pro/Education version of Windows 11 from the media creation site, but for us paying customers in an enterprise, we always have to wait for the Enterprise ISO to get posted to VLSC. Not sure why we have to always wait, but we do. And nobody knows when it will show up on VLSC. Basically whenever someone at Microsoft gets around to it.

The ISO and keys for new releases usually follow the GA by a few days to a week.

The author of that blog just posted an update for vlsc:

Downloads will be available the week of October 11th in the VLSC and similar channels across all products, markets and languages.

Yeah, I'm wondering if your organization is set up with windows insider, it's been available for insiders since July/Aug sometime(my home PC is on W11 because I'M an insider. My organization is definitely not on insider though and so I will wait :)

Hello,
the person I checked with Last week had relied on someone else, they looked on Visual Studio site instead.
He went up there today to the VLSC site and Windows 11 images were available.

thanks
Darrell

I had read that blog a few days ago. It references "Times may differ for downloads to be available in the VLSC and similar channels across all products, markets, and languages."

Glad to hear it is available for some. As of 3:41PM CST - 10/06/2021, there are no downloads available for Windows 11 yet for me when I log into VLSC. (Perhaps tomorrow.)

Hi there,

It is the patience game here, it might take a couple of days to get the latest ISO from the volume licensing site.
As you are new this might help you with steps https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-client/deployment/iso-file-on-vlsc

Hi there,

has anyone been able to get their Windows 11 Enterprise to activate properly?

I have uploaded the KMS key to our AD for activation, confirmed from VLSC it is the Enterprise version but when I check "winver" It is showing as Windows 11 Pro for Workstations

Is there something I'm missing in order for it to activate as Windows 11 Enterprise?

OS deployment is done via SCCM/MECM

Cheers,
Max
