When I tried to install Windows 11 on a spare computer for test, I used media creation tool to prepare a USB key for installation. After installation, I found that the installed Windows 11 is Home edition. On Windows 10 machines, I could just change the product key to either Professinal or Enterprise edition KMS key and I could change the edititon without re-installation. There is a nice page with the KMS keys for Windows 10 listed.
I tried to find equivalent KMS keys for Windows 11, but I could not find any. I then tried the Windows 10 Enterprise KMS key, and it worked for me. Note that when I fist tried to change the product key, I got a message saying something went wrong and it was not successful. However, after I restarted the machine and checked the edition and it did change to the Enterprise edition.
Here is a list of the Windows 10 KMS Client Setup Keys, please try them on your Windows 11 machines and let me know if they work for you.
