Catalyst 4500 Evaluation Enterprise Service License expires after I installed it one week ago??

Hi, everybody

     We purchased this 4500 two months ago with an evaluation enterprise licenses preinstalled in  the machine. After the first evaluation license expired, I got this second EVAL license from www.ciso.com/go/license. I just installed this 4500 Enterprise evaluation license one week ago, and it showed 8 weeks to expired. However when I check licenses status today, it tells me I only have 2 days left. (First EVAL license expiring date)

      However, we have a second 4500 running hsrp wih the first one with second EVAL license installed and the status seems pretty normal. We are planning to purchase permenant licenses in Feb, but how can I make sure the second 4500's second EVAL license won't expire in a random day?

      Any ideas?

Email license@cisco.com and ask them if they can give you an extension.

My 4500 license has expired as expected, however enterprise license features are not affected, only telling me the license has expired in syslog every 5 minutes. It seems Cisco is not that evil:)
