centralized license oddity?

So I aded an EVAL license to the backup master of a master-backupmaster setup.

 

Checked in CLI and the license got synced to the active master.

MASTER) #show license aggregate 

Aggregate License Table
-----------------------
Hostname   IP Address    AP    PEF   RF Protect  xSec Module  ACR  Last update (secs. ago)
--------   ----------    ---   ---   ----------  -----------  ---  -----------------------
MASTER     172.16.55.51  1024  512   0           0            0    27
BCKMASTER  172.16.55.52  0     1024  0           0            0    7

Total AP License Count          :1024
Total PEF License Count         :1536
Total RF Protect License Count  :0
Total XSEC License Count        :0
Total ACR License Count         :0

rebooted the APs that were unlicensed and noticed they came back up as unlicensed. So I checked license aggregate again and my eval is gone again.

Total PEF License Count         :512
Total RF Protect License Count  :0
Total XSEC License Count        :0
Total ACR License Count         :0

No heartbeats were lost during this process.

(MASTER) #show license heartbeat  stats

-----------------  ------      -------     ------------  -----------------------
172.16.55.51       1450        1450        0             3         
172.16.55.52       2898        2898        0             3         

So, what did I mess up here?

Am I not supposed to upload licenses on a backup master? Is the fact that it is an eval license the issue?  What happened?

 

Checked again 10 minutes later and found once again the licenses there just to disappear again seconds later.

Tip, check both controllers..

backup master had quite a few heartsbeats missed and that count was actualy going down.. go figure

 

(BCKMASTER) #show license heartbeat  stats 

License Heartbeat Table
-----------------------
Server IP Address  HB Req      HB Resp     Total Missed  Last Update (secs. ago)
-----------------  ------      -------     ------------  -----------------------
172.16.55.51       1476        2951        4294965821    4         

(BCKMASTER) #show license heartbeat  stats 

License Heartbeat Table
-----------------------
Server IP Address  HB Req      HB Resp     Total Missed  Last Update (secs. ago)
-----------------  ------      -------     ------------  -----------------------
172.16.55.51       1476        2952        4294965820    10        

(BCKMASTER) #show license heartbeat  stats 

License Heartbeat Table
-----------------------
Server IP Address  HB Req      HB Resp     Total Missed  Last Update (secs. ago)
-----------------  ------      -------     ------------  -----------------------
172.16.55.51       1477        2954        4294965819    11        

Rebooted this controller and all seems OK again. Scratch that, still bugging out. (counting down, down to 4294967280 now)

As these aren't even 'my' controllers I'll take the easy way out and upload an eval to the active master, but if someone cares to explain what is going wrong here. I'd love to know.
