Dis you stopped the system when you install the license?  I found that once, 
even though I stopp it, one of the process "saposcol" I think was still 
running, it seem he read the license info only when he start,. so logging 
oyn you see old infos.   I kill it by PID, install again just to be sure and 
restart SAP, all OK.
