SAP permanent license getting changed to temporary


Hello experts,

I am on SAP CRM ABAP 7.0 (Kernel release 701). I am facing a strange problem with respect to sap license. Last week we have installed a permanent license as lots of jobs were failing and it showed type "Perm" in transaction "slicence" with exp date "31.12.9999" corresponding to active hardware key. Bur surprisingly however it changed back to type "Temp" after a while with retention of 1 month.

And today morning it showed a "Valid From" as the date of last restart.

As of now we have installed the permanent license but we fear that it might again get changed to "Temp" after a while or during next restart.

Did any of you faced this earlier and if yes what is the exact cause and solution of this?
