    You cannot add the Windows10 KMShost product key to WS2012R2 - you must use the WS2012R2+Win10 KMS host product key instead.

    So, your options are currently:

    setup WS2012R2 as KMShost, update it with http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3058168 and add the new KMShost product key from your VLSC
    MS VLSC Website
     Licenses
      Relationship Summary
       pick your Active Licensing ID
          Product Key
           Windows Srv 2012R2 DataCtr/Std KMS for Windows 10 (if not found, and your agreement type = Open, request a key from MSFT)
