Cisco Anyconnect 25 licenses but only allows 3 active connections

I have 25 AnyConnect Premium Peers showing up under the "Effective Running Licenses" but the most active AnyConnect Clients I can get to work are 3. If I log on the VPN past the 3 connections it will kick off one of the earlier users logged in. I have the maximum VPN sessions set to 25. Any ideas of what I am doing wrong?

As cisco suggest, 
enable any connect in outside using ASDM with CLI. 
this issue appear when you enable any connect using only CLI.
